SEATTLE -- A 24-year-old homeless man has been arrested for allegedly raping a woman in the restroom of a Ballard car dealership.
He has also been accused of trying to head-butt a Seattle police detective as he was being questioned at the Seattle Police Department's headquarters.
The man, whose address is listed as "99999 Homeless St. Seattle" in court documents, has been denied bail.
Court documents say the 40-year-old woman took her car for maintenance early Monday morning at a car dealership in the 5200 block of Leary Avenue Northwest.
She used the bathroom at the dealership and was attacked. Court documents say the man, described as 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 250 pounds, forced open a stall door, grabbed her by the neck and pulled her out of a stall. She screamed, and he choked her, court documents say.
A dealership worker tried to get into the women's restroom, but the door was locked. The man later admitted to police that he locked the door.
The dealership employee was joined by a co-worker, and they both tried to get into the bathroom. The man moved away from the woman, and she unlocked the door, court documents say.
The dealership workers found the woman cowering against a wall, and she told them the man had raped her.
The man's pants were down, court documents say.
The workers held him until police arrived.
The man later admitted to police that he had assaulted the woman.
Detectives questioned him at police headquarters. He had been "resisting, aggressive and non-compliant" as officers took him to the interview, according to court papers.
As the interview ended. the handcuffed man lunged at a detective to head-butt a detective. He grazed the officer on his cheek, court documents say.
That detective and a second detective took the man to the ground, court documents say.
