The Seattle City Attorney’s Office has charged a 90-year-old man with sexual assault from an incident inside a senior housing complex.

The 66-year-old alleged victim says her elderly attacker isn’t the only one to blame because the suspect had a similar incident four years ago.

“I was so shocked. [Senior Housing Assistance Group] knew about this,” said SHAG resident Linda Malone.

Malone is the tenant’s association president at New Haven apartments in north Seattle.

In January, 90-year-old Abraham Kang contacted her to donate a bath stool to any resident who might need it.
