West Seattle Crime Watch: Restaurant patio vandalized

Just out of the WSB inbox, from Deb Breuler, co-owner of the Luna Park-area restaurant Avalon:

During the early morning hours our patio at Avalon restaurant was
vandalized. Two large planters were knocked over. Plants were pulled up, chairs were broken and thrown to the sidewalk out front. It must have happened quite late we were here until 1 am and back at 8 am. It has since been cleaned up and none of our diners had to miss a beautiful day on our patio. It was disheartening to know this happened in our community. If anyone saw anything?? I have reported this to the police.

No way to tell if it’s related, but while we were taking photos early this morning today at Alki Statue of Liberty Plaza, we were told that shrubs had been torn out by vandals overnight; Alki Community Council‘s David Hutchinson had replanted them and was cleaning up before the 9/11 anniversary events began.


  1. what is wrong with people?!?! Deborah did/does an AMAZING job with her restaurant and making it look pleasing to the eye (and all the senses!!)… what did these planter boxes do to anyone except beautify the area?!?! dummies~!

  2. Vandals suck. Whether on Alki or at Avalon in Luna Park, these creeps are the dregs of society.

  5. This town is full of bored teenagers and young unemployed adults. It’ll get worst because young people are clueless and scared without any hope for their future or direction and that destructive behavior.

  6. I have noticed litter and graffiti all along Harbor Ave. And in other places in West Seattle. I have reason to believe much of this is being done by Hispanic gangs to mark territory. I have contacted the King County Police, but they appeared to be disinterested.
