King County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man who attacked a Seattle woman on the Tiger Mountain Trail outside of Issaquah Saturday morning.

The 24-year-old woman was about 100 yards up the Tiger Mountain Trail around 10:40 a.m. when she was approached by a man in running attire. They made small talk, and when her back was turned, he grabbed her, shocked her with a stun gun and pushed her to the ground. The woman fought him off and escaped with minor injuries.

The suspect is described as a clean-shaven white male in his mid-40s, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 160 to 165 pounds, with gray to white hair. He was wearing a hoodless gray pullover sweatshirt with a “coarse weave” over a white turtleneck and black Spandex pants. He had on light-colored running shoes and black Velcro gloves.

Anyone recognizing the description of the suspect is asked to call 911 or the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.
