News SPD Offering Reward in UW Assault Case
posted by January 15 at 10:42 AMon
The Seattle Police Department is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in an assault on a 22-year-old UW student, who was beaten while parking her car last Tuesday morning.
The police have released a description of the suspect:
A white male, 20 to 30 years old. He has short, possibly brown hair and is 5’8” to 6’00 tall and average build. He is possibly clean-shaven. He may have been wearing a dark baggy jacket, dark baggy jeans, and a light colored hat or head cover.
Anyone with information can call SPD at 206-684-5550.
I have to say, I’m a little surprised that this is the case SPD is offering a reward for. Police haven’t announced any arrests in the the murders of Shannon Harps, Allen Joplin or DeChe Morrison. I’ve got a call in to SPD to find out what it takes for them to offer up a reward.
UPDATE: SPD says Crime Stoppers makes the call on offering rewards. However, SPD couldn’t tell me how Crime Stoppers picks their cases, as the person in charge is on vacation.
