Local Detectives: Man on The Loose After Sexually Assaulting Women

SPOKANE, Wash. - On December 10, 2008 and on December 15, 2008, a male suspect entered unlocked apartment residences in the Pines and Mansfield area of Spokane Valley and fondled victims.

 At 2:30 a.m. on September 27, 2009, a different victim had just left friends with whom she had  a meal and drinks. Walking home in the 400 block of South Pines, she encountered a suspect walking the opposite direction on the opposite side of the street.

The suspect crossed the street and confronted the woman.  He grabbed her by her hair and threw her to the ground where he attempted to unbutton her pants. Friends on the other end of her cellular phone call heard the suspect's voice and the struggle.

When the cell phone rang again, the suspect threatened to kill her and the caller if she answered it.

Detectives have recovered evidence from the three scenes that tie the offenses to a single suspect. He is a white male, 28 to 30 years old, who is 5'06" to 5'10" tall and 150 to 170 pounds. He had his dark brown hair styled in a crew cut and had no noticeable speech impediment or accent. 

A victim who was provided the sketch above was visibly shaken by the close resemblance.  Anyone with information regarding the man's identity is encouraged to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
