Rape arrest: An 18-year-old North Seattle man who allegedly lured a woman from an escort service to a remote area and raped her Friday night has been arrested on investigation of first-degree rape.

The woman told police she received a call about 9:15 p.m. to meet a man in the 22300 block of 70th Avenue W., Mountlake Terrace police Sgt. Jonathan Wender said Saturday. The man grabbed her from behind when she got out of her car and carried her to an old mattress behind a closed business and assaulted her, Wender said.

After the attack, he let the woman go and left. She called police, and a Brier police officer in the area saw a car fitting the woman’s description. The officer stopped the car and arrested the man without incident. Police impounded his car and will obtain a search warrant to look for evidence.

The woman was treated at Stevens Hospital and later released, Wender said.

Plane crash victim dies: A Gold Bar man who was the last survivor of a light plane crash in a suburban Puyallup backyard has died of his injuries.

Justin Holderegger, 20, died Friday at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, a nursing supervisor on Saturday told The Associated Press.

Becky Fausey, 25, of Graham died Wednesday at St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma.

Four others were killed last Sunday when the single-engine Piper Cherokee sheared off tree tops and crashed about three-fourths of a mile from Thun Field, also known as the Pierce County Airport, about five miles southeast of Tacoma.

The victims were identified as pilot Paul Burns of Bethlehem, Conn.; Becky Fausey’s husband, Troy Fausey, 27; and her parents, Kristin Henderson, 52, and Robert Henderson, 54, of Bothell.

The pilot was taking relatives and friends on sightseeing flights.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the cause of the crash.

Drive-by shooting: One man is in jail on investigation of first-degree assault with a firearm and two other people were arrested and released in connection with a drive-by shooting at a home in the 20100 block of 67th Avenue NE.

The incident occurred about 8:15 p.m. Tuesday when the three allegedly drove by a home and one fired a shotgun into a window where one of the home’s occupants was standing, police said. The shotgun blast broke the window, narrowly missing a female standing there. She received minor cuts from the glass.

The vehicle drove away, but witness descriptions led police to it about 40 minutes later.

A 19-year-old man was booked into Snohomish County Jail and a 28-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl were processed and released pending charges, police said.

Robbery suspect nabbed: A man suspected of robbing a 7-Eleven store Friday night, leading police on a high-speed chase to Marysville and then a foot pursuit, has been arrested.

The incident began about 8 p.m. when a man entered the convenience store in the 1200 block of Second Street. The clerk told police a man had jumped the counter and demanded money, taking an undisclosed amount from the cash register and then fleeing in a vehicle westbound toward U.S. 2, Snohomish police officer Richard Johnson said.

Police pursued the vehicle, and Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies and other officers joined in the chase, which progressed across the Hewitt Avenue trestle, north on I-5 and finally into Marysville, where the man turned onto a dead-end road, got out and fled on foot, Johnson said. He was arrested without incident and booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

Police recovered the money, Johnson said.
