Adams Elementary teacher James Skillings continues his recovery after he was attacked trying to help a woman at a bus stop. Now police have released a sketch of the suspect: a man in his 40s with a slim build and wrinkled face, carrying a large black backpack and wearing a black thigh-length coat with a white stripe down one sleeve. Meanwhile, Skillings is improving, yet is having trouble speaking. “Physically he’s able to walk with some weakness on one side, but he’s not able to converse because when he tries to put a sentence together he can’t find the right words,” his sister Jane Skillings Thompson told the Seattle PI.
