- Cops bust window breaker: A man seen breaking the windows of 11th Ave’s Vermillion art bar with stones was arrested only a few blocks away in a peculiar Tuesday afternoon attack. According to East Precinct radio dispatches, the man was chased down by police near 13th and Pike around 12:55 PM after being seen busting the windows and glass door at the bar. A witness said the man had a bag of rocks. Police summoned Seattle Fire to the scene of the arrest to treat the man for a small laceration to his arm. UPDATE 3:36 PM: All’s well… From Vermillion’s Facebook page: “The guys from Perkins Glass came out after hours and had this all fixed up within a half hour. The BEST!” UPDATE 4/2/14 9:10 AM: It seems likely the man arrested in the case is suffering from mental illness. According to the police report on the incident, the 25-year-old told officers he broke Vermillion’s window because “God told him to do it.” He has a record of recent arrests including trespassing.
