SEATTLE (AP) - A man suspected of groping a woman in downtown Seattle is now being investigated by police in other similar crimes.

The 36-year-old Kirkland man was taken into custody Wednesday for violating probation. Police had said he was a person of interest in Sunday’s groping, but detectives now call him a suspect.

The case got police attention after the 28-year-old woman who said she had been groped posted a picture of the man on Facebook and Twitter.

He was recognized by Department of Corrections officers as a Level III sex offender.

The Seattle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1suGbi8 ) he has a record of at least four other instances of sexually grabbing women he didn’t know.
