Woman Assaulted By Naked Man In Spokane Valley

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Right now local authorities are conducting a manhunt for the suspect in an alleged assault of a woman Wednesday morning in the area of 17th and Carnahan in Spokane Valley.

According to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office, the suspect is described as a naked black male, with a muscular build, and a tattoo on the upper portion of his right arm. He was last seen in the area of the 3800 block of East 13th at around 6 a.m. The assault happened around 5:15 a.m. 

Deputy Craig Chamberlin told KHQ that deputies have been looking for the suspect since about 3:30 a.m. after a people reported a "naked black man" was knocking on windows in the Carnahan Crest housing development. He added that a helicopter (Air One) and a K-9 unit is assisting in the search for the suspect.

KHQ Local News spoke with one woman who witnessed the naked man outside her window. She said she called 9-11 twice before when he started tapping on her back door. The first time the 911 operator did not take her seriously, according the anonymous neighbor. She claims the 911 operator told her to "call back if it continues." She says "she panicked" and called back right away. The Sheriff's Deputies then came out and searched, but after 45 minutes they couldn't find anything. Five minutes after they left is when she spotted the streaker.
