SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police say they rescued — and arrested — a man who had been chased by an angry crowd that believed he groped a woman in a downtown park.

An account posted Tuesday on the police website said police responded Monday to a report of a fight in Occidental Park. Witnesses told officers about the groping incident.

The witnesses also said a crowd of people chased the suspect through nearby Pioneer Square. They said the man had punched two of his pursuers.

Officers booked the man into the King County Jail for investigation of three counts of assault.
