  • Scooter rider slashing: Police say the victim in a stabbing near the Crescent Lounge Saturday night declined treatment after a road rage argument got way out of hand along E Olive Way. According to SPD, the slashing happened around 7 PM when the suspect on a motorized scooter reportedly struck the victim’s vehicle by swinging his helmet. Witnesses said the driver got out and confronted the scooter rider, pushing the rider off his scooter. The rider then reportedly pulled a knife and slashed the vehicle’s tires before taking swings at the driver, leaving the victim with a “bleeding slash to his chest and one shallow puncture wound.” Witnesses reported the suspect fleeing eastbound on E Olive Way but police were unable to locate the scooter rider. According to SPD, the victim was upset but declined treatment by Seattle Fire. There were no arrests.
  • Reported road rage: Police were called to the area around E Denny Way at E Olive Way early Thursday morning to a reported road rage shooting. The caller in the 4 AM incident told police a driver in a black Dodge Charger turned, pulled over, got out and opened fire with a shotgun in the incident. Police arrived to investigate but did not report finding evidence of a shooting. There were no reported injuries or arrest.
  • Madison food delivery car theft: A food delivery driver suffered serious injuries after being dragged and falling from his car while he attempted to hold on as a car thief sped away with his vehicle Saturday afternoon on First Hill. SPD reports the ripoff happened around 2p Saturday in the 1200 block of Madison when the driver was making a delivery:
    The victim, who is a newcomer to the area, left his keys in the ignition to make a delivery. When he returned there was an unknown male in his driver’s seat about to steal his vehicle. The victim ran to the driver’s side of his vehicle and wrapped his arms around the B-Pillar begging the thief not to take his vehicle. The driver ignored the victim’s pleas and accelerated the victim’s vehicle rapidly, which forced the victim to fall onto the street where he sustained significant injuries including a possible concussion. Officers brought an interpreter to the scene to assist with interviewing the victim and had him rushed to the hospital for his injuries.
    Police searched the area but were not able to locate the stolen vehicle or the suspect. Seattle Fire transported the victim to the hospital for further treatment.
  • Pike/Broadway robbery and water assault: A ripoff at the Broadway and Pike service station ended with two arrests after police say a female began throwing water on officers trying to take the robbery suspect into custody. Police responding to the early Sunday robbery found the suspect nearby on E Pike and were attempting to take him into custody when a reportedly intoxicated female began “showering the officers with water to prevent them from making the arrest.” “Officers had to call for additional units, and as they did so, the female shoved both officers nearly knocking them to the ground,” SPD reports. Police were able to take the robbery suspect into custody and then arrested the female suspect for investigation of assault on an officer. There were no reported serious injuries.
