|Duane Starkenburg, the suspect|
Apparently there have been some sexual assault cases in the area, so the incident set off quite a bit of attention from investigators and law enforcement. The story goes that a 27-year-old female jogger was running through the park yesterday afternoon, when Duane Starkenburg, the accused, tried to tackle her by throwing his arms around her legs. This was at 4 PM in broad daylight, mind you (well, if you can call what we get here in Seattle "daylight" that is). A little creepy if I don't say so myself.
Starkenburg is claiming that it was a misunderstanding and that he fell while trying to pass her. Apparently with his arms around her legs... gimme a freaking break. Read the whole story here.
