Police seeking attacker after woman reports assault

Police are looking for a man who sexually assaulted a woman Monday as she pushed her young child in a stroller though a South Hill neighborhood. The woman was walking down Regal Street near 53rd Avenue just after 6 p.m. when a man emerged out of the darkness, threatened and sexually assaulted her, according to the Spokane Police Department. Officers were dispatched to the scene and used a K-9 to try to track the attacker, but were unable to locate him. No arrests have been made. At this time, there is no suspect description other than that he is a male, police spokeswoman Tracie Meidl said. Detectives with the Sexual Assault Unit are investigating the crime. Anyone who may have witnessed the assault is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
