Police response on Genesee Hill: Tukwila carjacking arrest

October 4, 2010 at 2:35 pm | In Crime, Genesee Hill, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

ORIGINAL 2:35 PM REPORT: Thanks to everybody who e-mailed (etc.) about a sizable police presence on Genesee Hill, around 50th/Genesee. We went over to check, and most of the officers were gone, but we noted a Tukwila Police car on scene along with Seattle Police (see photo). Sgt. Sean Whitcomb of the SPD Media Unit only has preliminary information, but he says notes in the system indicate police made some kind of “felony stop” – arresting someone for a potential felony, which usually means lots of backup and guns drawn – and also that it may indeed have something to do with a case in Tukwila. We’re still working to find out more.

6 PM UPDATE: Update from Sgt. Joe Maccarrone: “It was a van taken from Tukwila in a carjacking; our guys spotted it in West Seattle, and one suspect was taken into custody without incident. (Suspect) and van were both turned over to Tukwila PD.”

  3. Be aware of two teenage boys on bmx bikes riding around the Holy Family School area off Roxbury.They were pounding at my fromt door at 1:24pm today.One was black and the other possibly asian or hispanic. Both appeared to be 15-16 years old with baggy clothing and both were wearing backpacks. We have surveliance cameras and saw them riding around the Holy Family School playground and then left at 1:34pm.These losers should of been in school.Luckily my mother-in-law and my dog were home.
