Police Blotter week of 2-10-14

Beast Mode
For one Seahawks fan Super Bowl Sunday ended up being not so “super” after a brawl that left the victim with a broken arm. On Saturday Feb.1 at about 2 p.m. police responded to reports of a man who was bleeding and claiming to have been stabbed at a bus stop at the corner of S.W. Alaska St. and California Ave. S.W. Responding officers found the victim, a white male wearing a Seahawks jersey, lying on the ground splattered with blood, cradling his arm, and being assisted by another man. Upon further inspection the officers noted that the bone in the victim’s arm was sticking through the skin and that the victim had not been stabbed but had had his arm broken.

The victim was clearly intoxicated and could not give a clear account of who had broken his arm or why. All that he would say was “I got jumped” and “I got beat up for being a Seahawks fan”. According to witnesses however a brawl was started with the victim and 6 or 7 other males inside a nearby bar when the victim’s Seahawks hat was stolen off his head. The brawl moved outside to the bus stop and seemingly ended once all involved realized the victim’s injury.

None of the witnesses had seen how the arm was broken so the exact method of assault is unknown. All of those involved also remain unidentified. The victim was transported to a local hospital by ambulance.

Kit Kat Bar
On Feb. 1 at about1 p.m. a convenience store and its clerk were robbed on 16 Ave. S.W. The suspects, male and female between the ages of 17 to 19, both white, are frequent customers of this particular convenience store and had come in that day to buy chicken. The suspects bought their food and then went outside to eat it. Approximately five minutes later the male suspect returned to the convenience store and began perusing the aisles.

When the suspect brought an ice cream to the clerk he realized he did not have the $1.49 to pay for it. Returning the ice cream the suspect came back to the counter with a Kit Kat bar and paid for the candy. Once the register was opened the suspect pulled a gun that was concealed in his waistband by his hoodie and ordered the clerk to give him all of the money, around $250, and then ordered the clerk to hand over his wallet (also containing around $250). The suspect then ran away.

When police arrived they attempted to find the suspects using a K-9 unit, but the scent went cold a couple of blocks away from the store. However police were able to collect fingerprints from the Kit Kat bar that the suspect had grabbed. The suspects remain unidentified.
