The Seattle Police Department has released a sketch of a suspect—not a “person of interest,” but a real-live suspect—in an assault, which left a Seattle elementary school teacher with possible brain damage.
On January 17th, Joseph Skillings, a teacher at Adams Elementary in Ballard, called 911 after he saw the suspect harassing a woman at a bus stop on the 300 block of East Pine Street. The suspect saw Skillings on his phone, and allegedly knocked him to the ground. Skillings hit his head on the cement and suffered a seizure.
SPD describes the suspect as:
A black male in his late 40’s. He is described as between 5’9” to 6’ tall, 150 pounds, with a slim build. He has been described as having a “wrinkled face.” He was last seen wearing a black knit ski cap, black thigh length coat with a 1-2” white stripe down the length of the sleeve. He may have been wearing a black velvet sweat suit and was carrying a large black backpack. He may also be wearing gold rings and/or bracelets.
Police are asking that people call (206) 684-5550 if they have any information about the suspect.
