Two West Seattle Crime Watch notes this morning. First one is a followup to an incident we mentioned on Twitter overnight – the screams that brought multiple 911 calls from a Fauntleroy neighborhood and led to an arrest; second, a “beloved” bike stolen this weekend, with its owner’s spouse asking that you keep an eye out – details on both, ahead:
First, the Fauntleroy incident. This one is notable particularly for neighbors’ fast calls to 911; as we monitored the scanner in the 2 am vicinity, the dispatcher mentioned multiple calls about a woman screaming for help in the 45th/Trenton vicinity [map]. One or more people then continued to call with updates involving possible vehicles involved, the woman’s whereabouts, and also a description of a man who seemed to be chasing the woman. Before too long, police caught up with the woman. The search continued for the man, who was found nearby (45th/Concord) and taken into custody.
A worried neighbor who was among those awakened by the situation e-mailed this morning to ask if we knew about it. Beyond pointing her to our tweets (even if you don’t use Twitter, you can scroll to the bottom of the WSB sidebar any time to see the latest ones, which our system automatically republishes there), we just checked with SPD. According to Det. Mark Jamieson in the Media Response Unit, the man, 30, was booked into King County Jail for investigation of domestic-violence assault; medics were summoned for the woman, 20, who was reported to have a “bite wound” on her hand.
Now, the stolen-bike report, out of the WSB inbox this morning, from Abigail:
My husband’s (beloved) Bridgestone RB2 bicycle was stolen right off of our front porch (at Delridge and Edmunds; map) sometime overnight Saturday. Chances for recovery are minimal (1% in Seattle,) but I’m still hoping against hope. It was his primary transportation and extremely sentimentally valuable. We have already filed a police report.
Details: Bridgestone RB2 road bike, silvery blue in color, Velocity Deep V rims, almost-brand-new Schwalbe tires, “rams horn” type handlebars wrapped in black bar tape, center ends taped off in white, locking hubs, an Axiom USB chargeable headlight, clip-in pedals. We miss this bike dearly. If anyone sees it, or thinks they’ve seen it, especially if it makes it to Craigslist or a pawn shop, please have them call me at (720) 771-6612.
