Seattle man accused of disabling neighbor's wheelchair, raping her in her home

SEATTLE -- An 18-year-old Seattle man has been charged with rape for allegedly disabling the wheelchair of his disabled neighbor and then sexually assaulting her in her home, court documents show.

King County prosecutor Daniel Satterberg charged Arman Hussein Majed with second-degree rape on Jan. 16.

According to court documents, Majed knocked on the door of his neighbor, who is confined to a wheelchair due to the double amputation of her legs.  He asked if he could use her phone. When he entered, he disabled her electric wheelchair and then raped her, threatening to kill her if she did not comply, the documents said.

The man then passed out on the victim's bed and the victim was trapped in her wheelchair all night. She reported the crime the next morning, when her caregiver arrived at her home.

When police arrived, Majed was still asleep in her bed and was arrested. As he was being arrested, the court documents say, he stated, "I won't do it again."

He is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
