West Seattle Crime Watch: What the big Delridge response was for

July 20, 2010 at 2:09 am | In Crime, Delridge, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

If you saw the sizable police response at Delridge/Brandon Monday night – several people e-mailed us about it – here’s what it was about, according to Southwest Precinct Lt. Ron Smith: One suspect was arrested after officers answered a disturbance call just after 8 pm, involving that suspect and a neighbor’s guest. During the disturbance, Lt. Smith says, “a knife was displayed, and the suspect began chasing the complainant’s cousin with a knife.” The suspect was eventually arrested for assault with a weapon; the knife had been thrown in the bushes just before officers arrived. Then police were called back to the scene just before 10 pm – the original complainant called to ask for help because, Lt. Smith said, “males associated with the suspect were hanging around and complainant was still having issues with them. Due to the nature of the original call, multiple units responded to ensure a peaceful resolution.”

  1. So that’s what that lady was swinging around in the street! I was wondering if it was a knife!

  2. They looked ridiculous too. Started going at each other in front of the police. That area needs to be cleaned up. I wish I knew what it would take to do so. Some folks are really trying to rebuild and clean up their homes… only to have jerks like them live next door.
