  • Olive onramp assault: An assault on a 91-year-old woman inside a vehicle on the Olive onramp to I-5 brought a large police and medical response to the area Wednesday around 11 AM.

    Phoenix Comics and Games reports this image was captured after a costly break-in which a thief took off with the Broadway shop’s safe full of cash and valuable collectibles. According to police and the store on the December 14th overnight incident, the suspect hid out in the building’s shared bathroom before hatching his plan:
    He waited til about 1:30 AM to emerge, then disabled our camera and attempted to break into the Metro PCS store, then us. He managed to get in and evade our security system, broke into our cash office and over the course of about 5 hours stole the drop safe through the back door / garage.
    If you can help identify the suspect, give 911 a call. It’s also possible the 40” x 20” x 20” drop safe got ditched somewhere nearby. Let police know if you see a big, black safe.

  • 10th/Prospect update: The investigation of the man found early Sunday morning with a slashed neck along 10th Ave E has concluded the incident was not criminal, SPD tells CHS. That indicates police have determined the injury was self-inflicted. The victim in the incident was taken to the hospital in critical condition. We do not have further information on his condition. Resources to help those in need: National suicide-prevention hotline: 800-273-8255. Local Crisis Clinic: (206) 461-3222. If you need immediate assistance, call 911.

  1. I saw the thing on Olive right before the police showed up. When I got there (walking on Olive from Melrose), a car was stopped on the onramp from the Capitol Hill side and there was a lot of honking and then yelling. When I crossed the onramp, someone walked over to the passenger side door of the stopped car (I’m guessing a person from one of the vehicles behind, which was probably the one honking) and opened it and tried to get in, and then another person was pulling him away trying to keep him from getting in the car. The police started showing up shortly afterward and I didn’t see any more until my bus came and drove past, at which point there were 4 police cars and they had someone sitting on the ground. No idea why the car was stopped at the ramp entrance in the first place though.

  2. I feel this is among the most important information for me. And i am glad reading your article. But should remark on few general things, The website style is great, the articles is actually great : D. Just right task, cheers
