According to the report on the morning September 28th incident, police arrived as the man was receiving aid from Seattle Fire on 11th Ave. But once police were on the scene, the victim decided to move on:
  • Moped knife threat: Watch out for a woman riding a red Moped-style motorcycle aggressively around Broadway — she might have a knife. Police were called to Broadway and Harrison last Thursday night during the 6 PM commute by a driver who said a motorcycle rider had cut him off, flipped him off, and threatened him with a four to six inch knife after he honked. Police responded to the intersection but the woman and her red Moped were long gone.
  • Wine shoplifter: A repeat shoplifter tried to use a familiar dilemma as her excuse for suspicious behavior in an October 1st theft reported at the Harvard Market QFC.

The suspect told police she was simply trying to decide between white and pink wine when she was tackled by security. The woman was taken into custody and trespassed from the store.

The 0.1 grams tested positive as meth. According to the report, the suspect was booked on assault and drug charges. “The Dildo was packaged and entered into evidence,” the report notes.

  1. I have had it up to HERE with these dildo assaults. The first mayoral candidate to address the REAL issues gets my vote. The shoulder discomfort that comes from a flung dildo needs to be a thing of the past.
