Kyle Lee Hammond – Repeat Sex Offender – Taking up-skirt photos

A convicted sex offender is back in jail after being accused of trying to take up-skirt photos of two 17-year-old girls on a Metro bus, P-I reporter Levi Pulkkinen reports.

According to police, Kyle Lee Hammond, 20, approached the teens Aug. 1 at a bus stop at Second Avenue and Seneca Street in downtown Seattle. The teens later told officers that Hammond slid under a bus shelter bench to peer up the skirt of one of them.

Hammond followed when the teens boarded a bus to Sea-Tac Airport He sat across from the girls, asking them which high school they went to as he apparently took photos with his cell phone, police said.

As the bus reached Sea-Tac, the teens fled into the terminal and phoned police. According to police report, both teens, crying and frightened that Hammond would return, gave Port of Seattle officers a description of the man harassing them.

Officers arrested Hammond nearby after a short chase. Searching his backpack, they found several printouts of nude, pre-teen girls as well as paperwork showing he’d been incarcerated in North Dakota after being convicted of sex crimes.
