It’s already September but we still have some mid-August tales from the East Precinct to share with you. First, a few more recent reports.
- Seattle Gay News is reporting another Hill assault involving possible hate motivation. A 26-year-old man was assaulted in front of QFC at Broadway and Harrison and called “faggot,” according to SGN.
- CHS reported on this car vs. bike accident on Pike at 14th Ave that happened the night of August 26th.
- The Stranger has the goods on an August 20th altercation between a biker and a driver at the intersection of Harvard and Pike.
Now to the mid-August blotter reports.
- Media critic: Speaking of The Stranger, they’re the victim in this rather icky incident from the afternoon of Monday, August 17. (including the word ‘feces’ in this post with hope that this article might end up in Lindy West’s magical Google Alert). Note that the officer’s report refers to The Cuff as a ‘restaurant.’
- Value Village shopper vs. cyclist: Nearby the following day, this fracas went down in front of Value Village.
- Another thing you can’t do in Cal Anderson fountain: Later in the week, police found this man passed out in a very poorly (un)chosen location — the Cal Anderson water feature.
- Del Rey laptop thieves: Be careful who you come home from Belltown with.
- BMW tire thieves: This St. Mark’s woman found that somebody made off with her BMW’s left rear wheel.
- Repeat Belmont burglar: The suspect in this case is a recurring character type on the Hill. At least this one usually limits his theft to food.
- Pretty Parlor fashion thief: Most Hill shoplifting incidents involve grocery stores and clothing shops. Here’s another for the latter category.
- Sports talk: This violent incident from the early morning of Wednesday, August 19, reportedly started over an argument about sports.
- Egg and ketchup attack: This tale of neighbor vs. neighbor involves egging and ketchup squirting. Very mature, Belmont Ave E.
- Not another Broadway pot bust: Before you get your NORML panties in a bundle, note that this driver was arrested for various vehicular offences not the blunt the officer allegedly found in the car. Then note that the officer randomly checks for information on passing license plates. Note also that the officer let one of the car’s occupants leave because the person had to ‘go to work.’
- Street robbery at Summit/Olive: Nothing funny about this one. Guy got beat up and robbed of $300 cash early on August 17th.
- Broadway Market parking lot rage: Lastly, here’s an incident that illustrates at least one reason you should be careful about who you flip off.
