PULLMAN, Wash. -- Police arrested a Pullman man for alleged rape.

The victim told police Alexander Lee Jeung, 19, assaulted her around 1:20 a.m. Thursday in the 300 block of NE Maple Street.

Police say she noticed a man trailing behind her as she walked home. She was soon after tackled and sexually fondled in a parking lot along Maple.

The suspect fled on foot when the woman, 19, screamed.

A witness called police and gave them the suspect’s description. Officers tracked down Jeung, who matched the witness’s report.

Jeung, a student at Washington State University, now faces a second-degree attempted rape charge, along with indecent liberties and fourth-degree assault.

The woman was treated for minor facial injuries at Pullman Regional Hospital.
