Police Blotter 1-13-14
An officer was flagged down on the 8800 block of 16 Ave SW by a victim who had just been sprayed with mace. The victim was walking home just before 10 p.m. when a person jumped out of a bush and sprayed the victim with mace and ran off. The victim managed to flag the officer down only minutes afterward. The victim could not provide any description whatsoever of the suspect and has no idea why someone would do this. When taken home by the fire department the victim was advised to shower and rinse his eyes thoroughly. The suspect remains at large.
The Run Around
On the 3rd of January police received multiple calls regarding a near hit and run on Delridge WY SW at about 6 p.m. The suspect was driving a 1995 blue Honda coupe and was seen (by witnesses and later by police via a nearby surveillance camera) to be having a heated argument with the victim on the street. During this argument the suspect made gestures to indicate he may have a gun and was seen to be looking around nervously as if for witnesses.
Angered and crazed the suspect returned to his vehicle, started it and turned off his headlights (it was dark at the time) and drove at the victim, coming onto the curb and barely missing the victim. The suspect then sped off with the headlights still of north on Delridge. Police arriving at the scene quickly identified the vehicle from the descriptions given by callers as well as the switched off headlights and began pursuing the suspect’s vehicle through congested neighborhood streets. Eventually the suspect managed to lose the police.
The vehicle and the suspect were later located by the license plate number at the suspect’s residence. The suspect’s vehicle was also identified as one reported in a shooting the 1st very close to where this incident occurred. The incident is believed to be gang related with the suspect being a known member of Sureno Villains Gang. Though located and identified the suspect has not been contacted by SPD yet.
