The woman, who knew the 52-year-old Young, told him that she didn’t want to come between him and his wife and tried to evade Young’s advances. Young did not stop and forced the woman into her bedroom, pinned her to the bed and ripped off her clothing.
He began to remove his own pants in preparation for violently raping her, when the woman’s screams alerted her already agitated dogs. Ultimately, one of the dogs ran into the rescue, jumped between the two of them and began biting at Young.
As the dog attacked him, Young quickly retreated, grabbing his pants and fleeing the scene.
Young was charged with Attempted Second Degree Rape and was being held on a $300,000 bail. He was a repeat offender, having just been released in October from completing a prior 20 year sentence for sex crimes.
The mother grabbed her son and threw herself out of the moving car, and Young drove over one of the woman’s legs, breaking her ankle, before a nearby Seattle police officer could prevent him.
It is safe to say that his time in jail did not cure Young of his desires to sexually harm women. However, it is doubtful that he predicted this situation would end in him running away in fear from a dog.
