Nude swimmer arrested in Seattle park assault

By Associated Press

POSTED:


SEATTLE » Seattle police have arrested a man accused of knocking a young brother and sister to the ground at a park, then stripping off his clothes and jumping naked into a nearby lake where he eluded police boats and divers for more than two hours.

The unidentified man was loaded into a medic unit at about 6 p.m. Tuesday. KOMO-TV reported he was bound for a local hospital for observation after his adventures at Green Lake Park.

Police say the 16-year-old girl and her 19-year-old brother were taken to a hospital by their father for evaluation. The 19-year-old reportedly suffered a broken finger and a split lip.

When officers first tried to talk to the man, Detective Jeff Kappel says he threw his sleeping bag at them and ran off.
