The prosecutor’s office says the North Bend-Snoqualmie Police Department will continue its investigation.
Police Chief Steve McCulley saidx he’s surprised by the decision. The man was arrested Tuesday night.
The woman was leaving work at the restaurant when she was forced back inside by a man who stabbed her, bound her wrists and feet with duct tape and sexually assaulted her.
