Having done her shopping for food for her kids at Safeways Monday night, Amanda Edwards was walking back to her car in the parking lot when a man drove up next to her and asked for directions. The man was fondling himself while asking for help.
Edwards got rid of the man, asking him to leave her alone. However, she then noticed him driving up to another woman with a child to do the same. Edwards warned the woman to stay away from the man, who hurried to leave the parking lot, and it seemed like everything was over.
Later that night, when the 35-year-old woman was walking back home, a man approached her from behind and started aggressively hitting her. Edwards suspects the attacker was the man from the parking lot, who followed her all the way home, waiting for the right moment to take revenge.
Edwards recalls, "He was extremely aggressive and when he came up and he said, 'I got you,' and when he started laughing - it was one of the most evil laughs I've heard." She later woke up on the ground and ran home, not feeling that her face was swollen with bruises and facial fractures that will have to be fixed surgically.
Based on the description, the attacker is a slim Pacific Islander in his 20s or 30s, driving a 4-door white sedan with the passenger side extremely damaged.
A spokeswoman with the Federal Way Police Department told the news that they are currently collecting more evidence to find the attacker. Meanwhile, Amanda Edwards continues to spread the word, "He put time into following me and getting out of his car and running up on me and attacking me and I feel like if he got away with it, he would probably feel like he can do it again." Investigation of the case continues.
