At about 8:30 a.m. , a 17-year-old student was walking to school when she passed a dark blue minivan parked on the street, police said. As she passed the van, she observed the suspect inside masturbating. The girl immediately ran to school and reported it to the principal’s office.
Officers immediately responded and located the van and contacted the suspect. He was identified and arrested by officers. The suspect was transported to the Southwest Precinct where he was being interviewed by detectives. He will later be booked into the King County Jail. It is unknown at this time whether this man is connected with the previous incidents near other West Seattle schools.
This follows a series of six reported men flashing school children in West Seattle.
We’ll have the latest on this morning’s arrest on Q13 FOX News at 4:00 and 5:00.
