Woman Runner Attacked in Lincoln Park!

Duane Starkenburg, the suspect
Lincoln park is where Roosevelt's XC team runs quite a bit for meets.  I know the park well (especially the portion that contains the 5k course) and have mentioned it in past blog posts: here and here.

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.
