Oklahoma man arrested for the rape of Washington woman
OKLAHOMA CITY – Police in Oklahoma arrested Christopher Brown, 25, for the March rape of a female in the White Center, Washington area.
Officials say the case was solved when the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab developed a DNA profile from the evidence collected at the scene which matched Brown.
According to the King County Sheriff’s Office, Brown had apparently been visiting King County from Oklahoma when when he allegedly attacked and raped a 58-year-old woman.
The King County Prosecutors Office filed charges of Rape in the 1st degree and Assault in the 1st degree.
An arrest warrant was issued and law enforcement in Oklahoma arrested him yesterday.
Authorities say Brown will have to go through the extradition process before being returned to King County, Washington.
According to Q13Fox, the 58-year-old woman was trying to catch the bus in White Center when she was violently attacked and raped last March.
She was beaten unconscious and unrecognizable.
Her eyes were swollen shut, her skull was fractured, and her jaw was broken in several places.
Although the woman did not want to show what she looked like before the attack, she said she shared a picture of what she looked like after the attack, because she wanted people to know how dangerous this man is and how important it is to get this man off the streets.
