Police Blotter 11-9-09 Stranger in the night
Around 6 a.m. Saturday, some residents in the 4000 block of 36th SW heard someone knocking at the door. When they discovered that the “someone” was a man dressed only in underwear, they decided to call 911. Officers spoke with the intoxicated fellow who didn't know where he was. It turns out he was wanted on a warrant from Spokane, so he was booked into King County Jail.
On Tuesday afternoon, two West Seattle High School students were caught drinking alcohol on school property. One of the girls had to be taken to Swedish for treatment. Although the girls said they'd been given the alcohol by a Sealth student, they refused to identify him.
As two women walked their dogs near 47th and Fontanelle, they were attacked by two dogs that jumped out of a parked truck. One of the women suffered bites to the leg, and the other woman's poodle was bit in the chest. A man drove off with the dogs before officers arrived.
Wednesday evening, a citizen called 911 to report someone impersonating an officer near 44th and Myrtle. Officers arrived to find a 2005 blue Crown Victoria with red and blue lights mounted on the windshield, a large flashlight in the center console and handcuffs on a spotlight. The owner, a 23-year-old resident of Snohomish, told officers that this setup gets him through traffic more quickly and prevents the State Patrol from “bothering” him. The Seattle officers confiscated the red and blue lights, which led the suspect (who stated that he'd always wanted to be a cop) to say that his lawyers were going to “have a field day.” He may face charges of impersonating a police officer.
Thursday morning around 10:30, a man approached a woman at the bus stop at 38th and Morgan, implied he had a gun, and then stole her purse.
Late Thursday, two men—one wearing a hockey mask—robbed the Super 24 (5400 block of Delridge) at gunpoint. Friday night, two Hispanic males wearing dark hoodies and bandanas over their faces displayed a gun and robbed Tervo's Mini Mart (4400 block of 36th) on Friday night. They fled in a white Ford Taurus sedan and remain at large. And just after midnight, a similar incident occurred at the Delridge Deli Mart (3800 block of Delridge Way). In this instance there were three Hispanic males in a similar disguise.
