July 15

Unlawful imprisonment: At 10:40 a.m. in the 14200 block of Southeast, a victim was visiting the suspect with her 5-month-old child. During an argument, the suspect punched the victim numerous times and prevented her from leaving the house. The suspect also accidentally stepped on the baby.

July 16

Caught red handed: At 9:37 p.m. in the 400 block of Bellevue Way Northeast, officers responded to a report of a domestic dispute.

July 17

Burglarized storage units: At 9:45 a.m. in the 12800 block of Northup Way, four storage units at the location were burglarized between July 16-17. The investigation found that the suspect may have gained access through a southwest corner. There was disturbed barbed wire.

Concerned mother: At 2:31 p.m. in the 14600 block of 34th Street, a woman reported that her son had been screaming and breaking things at the apartment. The suspect had only destroyed his own property and therefore not commited a crime. But he was arrested on a warrant.

Starbucks tip stealer: At 6:18 p.m. in the 100 block of 148th Avenue Southeast, several employees saw a suspect take the tip jar from the cash register area of a Starbucks, before leaving the store. A passing officer detained the suspect.

Watchful daughter: At 8:35 a.m. in the 12000 block of Northeast, a subject was inside a gas station paying for gas when the subject’s daughter, who was in the car outside, ran in.
