NEW — 6 p.m. Jan. 10, 2010
Police responded to Southeast 88th Street and 116th Avenue Southeast just before 7:30 p.m. Dec. 23. A man had jumped from a moving white, four-door Toyota Corolla and been pepper sprayed. The man said he had met two women on MySpace and met them at a Bellevue mall. Together they drove to Newcastle, and the women stole the man’s cell phone — worth $21 — and told him they were going to kill him. As the car slowed, the man jumped from the car, and one of the women got out and sprayed the man in the face. Witnesses came to help the man, and the women drove away.
A man reported that two men approached him in the 7900 block of 119th Court Southeast at 1:50 p.m. Dec. 26 and asked for the time. When he looked down at his wrist, one of the men ripped off his bracelet, which was 24-karat gold with a rectangular panel worth $500. After taking the man’s bracelet, the two men took off running down the street and out of site. The man reported that the suspects were black, 18 or 19 years old and about 165 pounds each.
A woman reported her 2003 Chevrolet Impala had been broken into at Castle Creek Apartments, 7000 132nd Place S.E., between 5 p.m. Dec. 30 and 10:454 a.m. Dec. 31. She reported the rear passenger side window of the vehicle had been shattered, and a bag of books and clothes worth $300 had been stolen.
A woman reported her 2001 Mitsubishi Montero had been broken into at the Newport Crossing Apartments, 7311 Coal Creek Parkway S.E., at 9:15 a.m. Dec. 31. She said she had gone inside the office for a moment and left the car unlocked. When she returned to her car, she found her GPS unit worth $200 had been stolen.
Banging noises out front
A woman reported she heard banging noises in front of her house, in the 11800 block of Southeast 87th Street, at 10:20 p.m. Jan. 1. She said she was nervous because somebody previously smeared dog feces on her car’s door handles. Police checked the area but found nothing.
Aren’t they open on Sunday?
Police responded to the UPS Store, 6947 Coal Creek Parkway Southeast, at 11:30 a.m. Jan. 2, because a homeless man was allegedly camped inside the store. When police arrived, they found a man walking down the street, and he told police they were there for him. He said he thought the store was open on Sunday and that the door had been unlocked, so he entered. He said was hoping to mail some gifts, which he had planned to wrap inside because of the cold, and he said he left the store to use the bathroom at Safeway. When he came back, the door was locked. His gifts and gift-wrap were inside the store on the packing table, and police said the man did not appear to be homeless.
A woman reported that a pedestrian unzipped his fly and waved his penis at her while she was stopped in her car at a red light at the intersection of Southeast 89th Place and Coal Creek Parkway at 3:15 p.m. Jan. 3. The woman was about to turn right from Southeast 89th Place onto southbound Coal Creek Parkway, and she made eye contact with the man to see if he was going to cross in front of her car. She reported the white man, who was about 5 feet, 9 inches tall, and between 50 and 60 years old and 165 and 180 pounds, stuck his tongue out and made a face as he performed the act. He was wearing a dark blue, hooded sweatshirt and a dark, dirty pair of pants. In general, he looked pretty dirty, the woman said. Another woman witnessed the incident and also called police.
Police responded to Safeway, 6911 Coal Creek Parkway S.E., at 8 p.m. Jan. 3 because a man was suicidal. According to the reporting person, the man said he had access to guns and wanted to be killed by police. Police found the man in a car behind the store, removed him at gunpoint and searched his vehicle, finding no guns. The man was taken to Evergreen Hospital for mental health evaluation.
