Woodinville man in custody for Kingsgate child rape
by Jeff Switzer
After receiving a citizen's tip on the afternoon of Mar. 13, King County Police detectives arrested a 26-year-old Woodinville man in connection with the Mar. 10 early morning rape of an 11-year-old Kingsgate paper boy.
The suspect had recently moved to the area from Davenport, Wa. and was arrested at his Woodinville residence without incident.
The boy had been delivering newspapers early Sunday morning, Mar. 10, in the Kingsgate area. He was allegedly approached by the suspect, who dragged him into a vacant lot at NE 134th Street and 126th Avenue NE, where he was sexually assaulted.
The man is being held on an outstanding auto-related warrant. First-degree child rape charges are expected to be filed early this week.
