By Tim Clifford

Thwarted robbery in store
On Sunday June 8th a robbery was interrupted while in progress just before 7 p.m. on the 4700 block of 42 Ave. S.W. The victim, an assistant manager to the business that was being robbed called police after he saw the suspect cutting security wires off of electronics in one aisle with a razor blade. The suspect was described as a black male in his mid 30’s with a medium build and wearing a black t-shirt, dirty blue knee length jean shorts and socks.

When the victim approached the suspect and told him to stop and to return the items that he had already stuffed into a bag nearby the suspect refused. The victim managed to get a hold of the bag on the ground at the same time that the suspect latched onto it. The suspect and victim began a “tug of war” over the bag. The bag eventually ripped at which point the victim attempted to detain the suspect in the aisle. A short scuffle began and the suspect managed to get free and run away.

The suspect left behind a number of items in his mad dash to escape including a bag full of personal items, the razor blade, and his sandals. The victim did not have any serious injuries from the attempted detainment, only a split lip. No identifying items were found in the bag and the suspect remains unknown at this time.

Stabbing on Alki
Early in the morning, around 4 a.m. on the 2700 block of Alki Ave. S.W. a man was stabbed four times with a broken beer bottle. According to the victim he was walking alone when a group of men began approached him. While this victim was talking with the group one the men became very “hostile” towards the victim and a fight of some sort broke out between the victim and this group.

During this fight the “hostile” suspect in the group broke a beer bottle and stabbed the victim four times in the forearm. The victim managed to break away from this altercation and drove himself to Highline Medical Center where he reported the incident to police from. The victim was unable to provide any solid information regarding the appearance of the suspects. An actual crime scene could not be established on the block where the incident occurred. The suspect and his friends remain at large.
