LYNNWOOD — Police are looking for a man they believe raped a woman in Lynnwood on July 26.

The suspect and the 33-year-old woman met early in the evening that Friday on a bus. He struck up a conversation with her. They got off at the same stop and they went to the same store, where she bought clothes.

Then they walked into the woods in the 17100 block of Highway 99. The suspect allegedly pushed her to the ground, and she hit her head on a tree, briefly knocking her unconscious, she told police.

The man then allegedly raped her, took her money and left.

An employee at a nearby store reportedly heard her screaming for someone to call 911 as she walked out of the woods. She was taken to the hospital, where she spoke with Lynnwood detectives and was treated for injuries. She was released from the hospital the same day.

Police believe that the suspect often frequents an area between Everett and Lynnwood along Highway 99. Anyone with more information about his identity or whereabouts should call 911.
