Man stabbed on 11th Ave — Plus, Blotter updates

Police found a man with a knife wound to his back Sunday night on 11th Ave but the victim provided few initial details of the attack. Medics were called to 11th and E Howell just after 10 PM after the bleeding man in his 50s contacted police near Cal Anderson Park, according to East Precinct radio dispatches. Officers found the scene of the attack nearby on 11th but were not able to immediately gather suspect information from the uncooperative victim. The victim’s injuries were not life threatening, according to radio dispatches. A man involved in an incident reported earlier in the night was detained near the scene of the stabbing but not immediately arrested. A woman was taken into custody on a separate warrant arrest.

East Precinct Blotter

  • Hot Mama’s vandalized: A weekend Reddit post documents an eyewitness account of what reportedly happened when a hungry patron was denied a hot slice at last call early Sunday morning:

    It was about 2:30 this morning. Mama’s was closing and serving the last of the night’s pizza. Chick’s friend got a slice and she didn’t and got pissed. Started banging on the windows, yelling and swearing. Staff told her to leave and she just kept yelling. Eventually threw a chair against the window and ran off in a huff.

    SPD was dispatched but the report on the incident is not yet available.

  • City Market stabbing update: The police report has been released for last week’s stabbing incident on E Olive Way in which a man entered City Market after he was stabbed on the street outside following a dispute with a suspect who managed to escape the area. According to witnesses, the victim had been yelling at somebody outside the market when he was attacked:Screen Shot 2013-09-23 at 10.17.56 AM Screen Shot 2013-09-23 at 10.18.16 AMThe victim’s injuries were not life threatening. There were no immediate arrests in the case.
  • Screen-Shot-400x537 (1)Bellevue Ave car fire: Seattle Fire responded to a reported car fire in the 1800 block of Bellevue Sunday just after 11 PM. No word on what lead to the incident. Seattle Fire did not dispatch the marshal to investigate indicating the blaze was not considered suspicious.
  • ‘Creepy Cameraman’: A man shooting video on E Madison last week appears to have the same MO as a privacy advocate labelled the “Creepy Cameraman” by local media.
  • 11th Ave E burglars make themselves at home: The victim in a brazen burglary over the weekend — including an unauthorized showering — has shared details with CHS and is offering a reward to get his things back:

    On late Friday night (Sept 20th)/early Saturday morning, a group of apparent drug addicts broke into XXX 11th Ave E while I was away overseas. They appear to have helped themselves to a meal in my kitchen, enjoyed a nice hot shower in my bathroom, smoked some cigarettes… and then stole the consumer electronics, tearing through the contents of dozens of boxes in storage in my basement, leaving their contents strewn all over the floor in one giant mess.Shortly afterwards, a number of downtown Seattle stores were visited beginning at 1:00 PM using AmEx credit cards stolen from the house. These stores included Sephora, Target, Diesel USA, Bartell’s, and Walgreen’s. We are now working with these stores to obtain their video records for police investigation.

    A $500 reward is offered by the homeowner for information that leads to the arrest of the criminals. Please contact: [email protected], or SPD at [email protected] (206 684 4300)

Wait– You mean the field lights being left on all night didn’t prevent this?

That part of Capitol Hill may be the vilest area in the city. I simply don’t go there anymore. I don’t think I have walked south of John and Broadway for several months now. Not only is there the safety issue, but frankly the area just grosses me a out. I always feel depressed about the state of the neighborhood after strolling through there, so better for my mental well-being to just avoid it

Apparent drug addicts on the loose with human-scale switch-mouse! Also, nice bullet-point glyphs.

Hi, I’m the guy whose house was broken into on 11th.

I also gave CHS the wrong address for the officer — it’s, not .com

The extent to which my house and everything I own was completely ravaged is really staggering and will take weeks to clean up. Everything from communication with my late father, to a Celtic harp that I built myself as a teenager, was removed from my home — or was ripped open and/or damaged in some way.

Any information you may have in identifying the criminal is greatly appreciated (who I believe to be a tall, homeless drug-addicted man, based on the clothing and drug tools left behind) — I’m less concerned about getting my stuff back than getting this criminal in custody before he does this another time.
