According to Q13Fox, SPD officers are searching for a man who reportedly whistled at a female Whitman Middle School student, grabbed her arm and tried to drag her into his car while his pants were down.
The incident reportedly took place on Wednesday morning when the student was approached by a man in a silver, four-door sedan while she was a block away from the school (9200 block of 15th Ave NW).
According to Q13Fox, Seattle Public Schools sent a letter to parents confirming the reports.
The student was able to run away from the man and made it safely inside the school where she immediately reported the attack to the Assistant Principal. The SPD were notified and no suspects were located at the scene.
According to the Q13Fox report, school administrators praised the student for the actions that she took both during and after the incident.
“Our student did everything right,” administrators said. “Immediately getting away from the stranger, and reporting the incident to the school, to the police and to her parents.”
Anyone who knows more about this incident or witnessed the attack is encouraged to call 911.
Seattle Public School officials remind students to walk to school in groups, where possible, and to aviod talking to strangers.
