issaquahISSAQUAH — Police on Thursday arrested a 56-year-old Renton man, a Level III sex offender, on suspicion of communicating with a minor for immoral purposes.

Police said officers received three complaints in late August about a man driving around a shopping center in the 700 block of Northwest Gilman Boulevard in Issaquah. Witnesses said the man made sexual and disturbing comments toward women and that he was seen photographing women and then making comments to them about it.

The suspect also approached a 16-year-old girl and made sexual comments to her, police said. The girl ran and alerted her parents, who, with other witnesses, were able to record the man’s license plate information and provided a description of the man to police.

As a result, the Renton suspect was arrested without incident on Thursday, Issaquah police said.
