Western Washington man suspected of raping Pullman teen

A Western Washington man is in jail for allegedly raping a 15-year-old female in Pullman last week, according to a Pullman Police news release.

Authorities arrested Walter M. Weeks, 36, after he reportedly chatted online with the victim for two weeks before driving to Pullman to meet her at a motel room on March 15, the release said.

The victim told detectives that several sexual acts took place at the motel room before he traveled back to his hometown of Des Moines.

Pullman detectives searched his home and seized a vehicle and electronic equipment belonging to Weeks.

His bail is set at $50,000 at King County Jail on a charge of third-degree rape of a child.
