Friday afternoon, March 16, 2018, Snoqualmie Police officers responded to a report of a possible assault on a 16-year old female in the area of Park Street and Meadowbrook Way.
According to Snoqualmie Police Chief Perry Phipps, the three schools in the area – which include Mount Si High School main and Freshman campuses and Snoqualmie Elementary – were locked down while officers, including a K-9 unit, searched the area for the suspect.
SVSD schools have early release on Fridays and so what students and teachers were still on campus followed a shelter in place procedure.
Officers were unable to locate the male suspect that fled.
The female involved in the incident was not injured. Via email Chief Phipps said the lockdown/shelter in place was lifted around 2PM.
The suspect is described as an adult male wearing a gray t-shirt and black pants.
SPD stated via social media that officers were pursuing all leads.
According to a source familiar with the case, the female involved may have had her breasts grabbed.
