Police officers arrest two adult male suspects in reported disturbance at apartment complex

Redmond police officers arrested two adult male suspects Wednesday morning after receiving several calls of a disturbance and possible assault at an apartment complex in the 18100 block of Northeast 95th Street, according to Redmond Police Department public information officer James Perry.

The building was briefly evacuated since one suspect was still inside a unit, but he exited without incident and the scene was then safe and secure, according to Perry. The other suspect exited the unit without incident earlier. The suspects were identified as 32-year-old and 20-year-old Redmond residents, a police press release reads.

“The two suspects were positively identified by witnesses as having been involved with the observed disturbance,” the release reads.

Perry said the calls came in around 11:14 a.m. and officers arrived at the complex to find a female outside the unit in the parking lot. According to the release, the female told officers that two adult men sexually assaulted her and stole some of her property while she was visiting them in the apartment. Police executed a search warrant and the female’s property was found inside the apartment.

“The female had communicated with one of the males via an online dating site and this was the first time she had met either suspect in person. Investigators developed information that the sexual contact that took place between the suspects and victim was not consensual,” the release reads.

Members of the Redmond Fire Department were on scene as a precaution and the female was transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries, the release said.

The suspects were booked into the King County Jail for investigation of second-degree rape, second-degree robbery and unlawful imprisonment.
