Sex Offender with Columbia City Ties Arrested for Downtown Rape

Back in November of 2012, Columbia City made some unfortunate national news when a Anthony Phillip Hawkinsman was arrested outside of the Columbia City Alehouse for masturbating in public. His infamous “wait ’till I’m finished” remark to the arresting police officers was the subject of numerous articles, programs, and general internet commentary.

KIRO is now reporting that this same man, Anthony Phillip Hawkins, was just arrested and accused of raping a woman on the 19th in downtown Seattle. This is his 84th arrest…yup, that’s 84th:

The incident happened about 3:45 a.m. May 19 in the 100 block of Third Avenue South. The victim, 33, had consumed a number of drinks before heading home from her bartending job on Capitol Hill, police said in an incident report. As she was using a key to enter her building police said Anthony Phillip Hawkins ran from behind and grabbed her.

The victim had never seen Hawkins, who forced the woman to the sidewalk and climbed on top of her. Court documents described a graphic scene.

“The defendant’s recidivism and escalation is alarming,” Senior Deputy Prosecutor Carla Carlstrom wrote of Hawkins. “He was released from jail on Nov. 5, 2012, after serving time on a conviction for felony indecent exposure. Nine days later he committed another felony indecent exposure when he aggressively approached individuals in Columbia City and then began masturbating in front of them.”

According to the King County Sheriff’s Office searchable database of registered sex offenders, Hawkins does not live in the Rainier Valley.
