May 28

Can we talk?: At 12:38 a.m. in the 1600 block of 140th Avenue Northeast and 2400 block of Bellevue Redmond Road, suspects allegedly stole from multiple businesses. The officer looking into the crimes recognized both suspects from prior contacts. The suspects were at a third party’s home, but both suspects refused to exit the house to talk to police. The homeowner would not give consent for police to enter. The officer told the suspects to look for their court summons in the mail.

Let me borrow that phone: At 8:05 p.m. in the 4100 block of Factoria Boulevard Southeast, a suspect asked to use a subject’s phone. As the person was dialing the number for the borrower, they snatched the phone from their hands and walked away. The victim attempted to retrieve their phone but was assaulted. The suspect fled.

Take a shot: At 2 p.m. in the 16100 block of Northeast 8th Street, a suspect was extremely intoxicated and making threats to fight others at the park. When they were approached by police, he threatened to fight them too — only after he was in handcuffs.

Someone’s confused: At 5:30 p.m. in the 10600 block of Northeast 9th Place, an employee reported an unwanted subject at the location arguing with another employee. The employee witness said the subject brandished and pointed a firearm at them. The employee then took off. They hid in a storage closet. A description and photo were sent out and the subject detained a bit later. After being arrested, the suspect told investigators there was video of the incident on his phone. The video showed that there was never a gun or gestures made consistent with having a gun in his hand. The subject was released.

Not acceptable: At 6:45 p.m. in the 3700 block of Factoria Boulevard Southeast, suspects were unhappy with how their food order was processed. To convey this point, one suspect jumped on the counter and threatened employees with a weapon. Several that worked there felt threatened by the display. The suspects took off in a car but were contacted by officers as they were pulling into an apartment complex parking lot. The officers were there on an unrelated call.

June 1

How’d that get there: At 7:27 p.m. in the 15800 block of Eastgate Way, an officer was driving behind a car, checking its plate when the car quickly pulled into a parking lot and crashed into a large corporate sign. The driver got out of the car and ran. But, he forgot to put his car in park and it rolled over his own leg. The driver again took off running. He was found hiding on the ground a couple blocks away. A search found suspected drugs and forged IDs.
