- A wheelchair-bound man stopped a potential burglar from entering his Capitol Hill home Monday evening after he heard someone trying to enter his secured property, according to police. The resident, who has lived at the home in the 1600 block of 13th Avenue since 1977, was watching TV from his bed in the living room when he heard a loud bang from the front door, according to police.
Unable to check the front door the man called 911. While on the phone, police say he heard male voices outside and the sound of a window breaking.
When police arrived, they found the suspected burglar jumping over a chain-link fence surrounding the property. Nothing was taken from the home, but police say the man scaled the fence, which is padlock secured, to enter the yard.

- A woman cat-sitting for a friend in Capitol Hill was assaulted, rather than thanked when the owner returned home last week and demanded she help sell a stolen dog crate for heroin money, according to the Seattle Police Department.
Police say the man was released early from a program and when he returned to his apartment in the 1500 block of E Olive Way last Thursday he was carrying a dog crate that he claimed he found in an alley. He told the woman he wanted her help selling it so he could use the money for drugs, according to police.
When the woman refused to help sell the crate the next day because she suspected it stolen, the man called her a “dog crate bitch” and pulled a seven-inch knife on her, according to the report on the incident.
Police say the woman’s boyfriend was able to get the knife away from the man, but while placing the knife out of the way, the man shut the woman’s head in the bedroom door, leaving her with cuts on her forehead. The man called police himself after the woman and her boyfriend refused to leave following the fight, but police arrested him for investigation of assault and VUCSA, after finding a single piece of black tar heroin in his jeans pocket.
