Two West Seattle Crime Watch reports this morning, starting with 2 women out for a walk, approached by a pickup-truck driver who they say was engaging in lewd behavior, and intent on them seeing it. Details, plus a car-part theft, ahead:
The woman who reported this did not want to be identified:
This morning at about 8:45 am a friend and I were walking on Beach Drive about a 1/2 mile north of Lowman Beach when we noticed a white Mazda pickup following us. The truck had been discreetly pulling up just behind us and didn’t draw our attention at first, as we thought it was pulling over to park, etc. We were engrossed in conversation but after the car moved forward and pulled up behind us a third time we turned to see a Caucasian male about 40 years of age masturbating in the driver’s seat. We screamed at him and he smiled and continued to masturbate for a few seconds before speeding away. He drove south on Beach Drive and quickly turned left onto 48th Ave SW traveling north. The truck was a white Mazda pickup. The driver was average/heavy build, thinning brown hair, wearing a white shirt and khaki work pants. We called 911 immediately to make a report. Please contact police if you have had a similar incident or familiar with the vehicle.
This morning’s other report, from JP in Upper Fauntleroy:
I have an annoying Crime Watch event to report – the spare wheel and tire was stolen from my 2011 Jeep Wrangler last night. It was parked on 40th and Cloverdale (one block south of Thistle).
