The Morning Blotter: Red Dragon Vs. Mr. Bator

A 43-year-old man may be facing charges for indecent exposure after one of Seattle’s masked crusaders interrupted the man’s alleged dastardly masturbatory display on a Metro bus.

Police say that around 9:00pm Monday night, a woman riding the #36 Metro bus in South Seattle screamed that a man on the bus was masturbating, and told the driver to pull over.

Costumed do-gooder Red Dragon—who was riding the bus, but wearing civilian clothes at the time—saw the suspect tucking his own little red dragon back into his pants, and leapt into action.

According to police, the suspect—identified by police as Francisco Lopez-Ramirez—fled off the bus and ran eastbound.

Red Dragon—who asked us not to reveal his secret identity—chased the suspect to an AM/PM at MLK and Orcas, and followed the man inside.

Police showed up at the gas station, just in time to catch Lopez-Ramirez walking out of the store with a beer.

Officers arrested Lopez-Ramirez and booked him into the King County Jail.
