- One of Washington’s Most Wanted turns herself in: One suspect in this October 13th street robbery at Bellevue and Olive St has surrendered to police:
A 31-year-0ld woman turned herself into the King County Jail for an outstanding warrant and told booking officers that she had been featured on Washington’s Most Wanted.
Last night, at around 9:30 pm, robbery detectives were notified that the suspect had turned herself in. They interviewed the suspect about her role in an October 13th robbery that occurred near Bellevue Avenue East and East Olive. In that case, the victim was confronted by three suspects and her cell phone and wallet were taken. The suspects later used the victim’s credit card at various locations after the robbery and images of the suspects were captured on business cameras.
Following the interview, the suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery. Detectives are currently seeking the other two suspects and the investigation continues.
- E Pike bar burglar: Police believe the suspect in the burglary of a 1000 block E Pike bar likely had “prior knowledge” that aided him in the crime. According to the report on the October 22nd incident, the suspect made off with $285 in cash from a safe in an area of the club that was inadvertently left unlocked during the night’s business:
Police say the male suspect can be seen in the video exiting the building and speaking briefly with somebody outside before leaving the area.
- First Hill assault: Seattle PI has details of an assault on First Hill near Boren and Spruce that left a man hospitalized:
A man was badly beaten Monday night by what he described as four unknown men, leaving him hospitalized with several injuries.
Police responded to Harborview Medical Center at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday morning after the man was admitted there.
Officers described the man as conscious and alert, but in “poor physical condition,” Seattle police reports say.
- Pine/Harvard mugging: Monday night just before 11, SPD was called to a reported street robbery near E Pine and Harvard. The report on the incident is yet to be released but details gathered from police radio indicate the suspect fled via the Seattle Central parking garage and could not be located by police. The victim was not injured in the mugging. The suspect was described as a black male, around 6’3″ with a husky build and bald head. Meanwhile, following last week’s report of two men who were able to walk away from their would-be street robbers, there have been a few more botched muggings reported on Capitol Hill streets this week. Monday around 5:45 PM, police were called to 19th and Republican where a young street robber wearing green camo pants and a red jacket reportedly tried to steal a phone before fleeing the area. Wednesday just after noon, police were called to the area on Harvard behind Seattle Central to a report that a man had fended off an attempted street robbery of his “Walkman,” according to SPD radio dispatches.
- In case you missed it: The Broadway Chase bank robbery suspect has been charged (after breakfast), the mayor is considering ending the Cal Anderson anti-crime lighting experiment and the county will be conducting a standard inquest into the July 5th fatal shooting of a mentally ill man on Capitol Hill.
- Neighbor Katie warns: “Thursday or Friday night the fuel line to my gas tank was sliced in an effort to siphon my gas (they were unsuccessful, but I still have to get a new line). I park my car on Crawford Alley (behind Summit Ave) and have heard of this happening to other people around the hill. Thought it would be nice to get the word out so maybe this can be stopped!”
