South End Groper Strikes Again

posted by on May 19 at 17:33 PM

The South Seattle Groper has claimed another victim. Around 10 AM on Saturday morning, a man—who police describe as a 40-year-old black male, driving a 1994 green Jeep Cherokee—approached an Asian woman and her two-year-old child on the 7500 block of Renton Ave S and grabbed the woman’s buttocks.

The woman began screaming and witnesses—who reported the incident to police—saw both the victim and the groper run from the scene. Police are still attempting to contact the woman.

Police believe the same man is responsible for at least 21 other gropings in the South Seattle area.

I initially thought the headline read "South End Gopher Strikes Again".

That would have been funnier.

A detective came into my office a while back asking if we knew anything about this guy.

P.S. I hope the cops catch this jackass.

Yes, I know that this guy is a creep and that this is serious, and I hope they catch him....

But doesn't he sound like a character from a John Waters movie?

@1 I totally read it that way too!

4, yes. and knowing waters, he might not even hire an actor to play him, but the guy himself (after he's done his 1 year + community service, ahem).

Also, everyone please go and flame theferret's LiveJournal, because clearly this is all his fault.

I was going to make a joke about his just being confused trying to find a South end BBW party, but clearly nobody's confusing an Asian woman and her kid as a South end BBW party. Maybe from the back.
