Michael Stanley, a violent criminal who attacked a 16-year-old in West Seattle in 2013, has struck again
On Feb. 28 Michael Stanley, 49, broke into the Skyway home of a 69-year-old woman and raped her. Stanley was arrested only blocks away from her house the same day and charged with Burglary in the First Degree and Rape in the Second Degree. A bail amount of 1 million dollars has been set.
According to charging documents just after 10 p.m. on Feb. 27 Stanley showed up to the victim’s Skyway home and knocked on the door asking for work. Stanley had done yard work for the woman last summer and told her he needed money. The victim told officers she could tell he was drunk and turned him away.
He was allowed into her house to use the bathroom quickly and then went outside and stood in her yard while waiting for his bus to arrive. The victim decided to go for a short walk and when she returned home Stanley was gone.
