Charge: Sexual aggressor knocked woman unconscious on Capitol Hill
SEATTLE - A 32-year-old man is accused of following a pair of women on Capitol Hill, holding his exposed penis, before knocking one of them unconscious.
Police reports say that Derron Wiggins then tried to run from cops but was caught while appearing to shove cocaine into his mouth.
The incident occurred early the morning of Aug. 30. The women involved reported that Wiggins, a stranger to them, sat next to them in a bar while they waited for their ride.
When the pair left about 2 a.m., Wiggins allegedly followed them on East Pike Street.
While pursuing the women, Wiggins pulled his penis from his pants and made derogatory comments to them, Seattle Police Detective Nathan Janes wrote. One of the women told him to leave them alone and that he couldn't talk to them that way.
Wiggins replied, "(Expletive) you! I can talk to you however I want!" according to a court memo. He then slammed the woman's face into a wall near a window at Poquitos, a Mexican restaurant, causing her to fall unconscious into some bushes, the incident report says.
Two security guards at the nearby Havana Social Club watched the assault occur, they later told police.
Responding police officers saw one of the guards yelling at Wiggins in the street. The guard identified Wiggins as the man who assaulted the woman.
When the cops ordered Wiggins to stop, he allegedly turned and ran, but was soon captured and identified as the aggressor by the second Havana security guard, reports indicate.
During the pursuit, officers saw Wiggins pull something out of a pocket and convey it to his face, they claim. When the cops caught up to him, they spotted white powder on the corner of his mouth and recovered a plastic bag from his right pocket that looked like it had been chewed on.
The substance inside tested positive for cocaine at the site, according to the police report.
The woman refused to be taken to a hospital when she regained consciousness and her boyfriend drove her home, court records say. However, the next morning she experienced nausea, a severe headache, soreness and light-headedness. She went to Overlake Medical Center in Bellevue, where she was diagnosed with a concussion. Her symptoms grew worse and she was unable to work, according to police. She also suffered some memory loss.
Wiggins was charged Sept. 1 with second-degree assault, drug possession and indecent exposure. He remains jailed on $250,000 bail.
Senior Deputy Prosecutor William Doyle wrote that, at the time of this incident, Wiggins had been conditionally released from jail for another case in which he was accused of assaulting and strangling a woman.
