Two car-prowling reports in West Seattle Crime Watch today – including one with an accompanying video clip. Both reports are ahead:
First, from Michelle:
I came out to my car at 7 am on 7/10/12 to find that the glove boxes were open to my Honda Insight and my GPS and IPod were missing along with the IPod USB cord and my hands-free headset for my phone.
I had left the car doors unlocked on accident. I live between Raymond and Juneau in the alley off Fauntleroy.
Second, from JS, who included this video link:
There were 2 guys roaming around trying to open car doors (Monday) night and they seem to have been intoxicated. I recorded some of the incident and one of them had their rear-end exposed while committing and expressing crude acts.
This was around SW Henderson St. I’m surprised no one did anything because he was on the street for about 2 hours.
Someone had called the police and they came around later to quickly patrol the area but they didn’t see him because he hid under the red car (I’m assuming he did because I had kept my eye on him the whole time but he was on the driver’s side of the car).
I called the police after he started his crude acts again and they came around 15 minutes later to patrol the area once more but he had gone off west. They did however find a buddy of his who had been laid out on the other side of the street.
Mentioning of acts which were not seen in the videos include sitting on other cars, kicking the car window, standing in the middle of the street, and shouting an open invitation for a fight.
We’re checking back with JS about the nearest cross-street on SW Henderson.
