Knife-Wielding Man Tries to Sexually Assault Bikini Barista

Kent Police arrested a 33-year-old man Wednesday morning after receiving multiple tips identifying the suspect involved in the February 20th early morning bikini barista stand sexual assault

Shocking surveillance video has emerged of a knife-wielding man climbing through the window of a coffee stand on Tuesday, Feb. 20, in an attempt to kidnap and rape a bikini-clad barista.

At 4:45 a.m., police responded to the Hottie Shots Espresso stand, located at 21237 84th Ave S., after a 30-year-old barista reported the incident.

The victim, later identified as Madeline Guinto, told local media that she did everything she could to stall or stop her attacker, and added that she was glad it was over.

A judge ordered a 33-year-old man held on $1 million bail Thursday after he was arrested in connection with an attempted rape of a Kent bikini barista earlier this week.

A man standing just outside, while the barista was not looking, climbed through the window, and forced her to the ground at knifepoint.

"He kept telling me, 'you're coming with me or I will kill you, '" Guinto told the station.

'I'm trying so hard not to live in fear, I don't want this to destroy me'. "I'm going to die fighting'". She said she wrestled him for his knife after he threw her to the ground in a nearby alley.

The barista reportedly fought back, and during that time the headlights of another customer arriving at the shop spooked the assailant.

The suspect then fled, leaving Guinto shaken and with several scratches, but otherwise uninjured.

She said she fought to grab his knife and struggled with him until something startled him, allowing her to run back to her stand and call the police. Kent police then arrested Reynolds at the furniture warehouse where he worked.

"Don't work out just because you want to be skinny or fit into that bikini", Guinto told KIRO.

"Just catch this guy seriously why do people think they can get away with this kind of stuff?" she said.

Guinto said she isn't sure that she will go back to work there.
