Three reports in West Seattle Crime Watch today, starting with this just in from SPD Blotter – heard snippets on the scanner overnight but now the police have a full report:
On March 2nd at approximately 12:57 a.m. officers responded to the report of an armed robbery of a citizen near California Avenue SW and SW Dakota Street. Preliminary investigation indicates that a man and a woman were walking on California Avenue SW when two black male suspects in their 20′s approached them. One of the suspects brandished a handgun and robbed the victims of their cell phone, money, purse, wallet and ipad.
The suspects then fled the scene running northbound in the alley on the west side of California Avenue SW. A witness saw a black male get into the front passenger seat of a white Lexus sedan. The Lexus was last seen driving eastbound from SW Bradford Street and California Avenue SW. The suspect vehicle is further described as a white Lexus 4-door sedan with gold trim and Washington plates. There are no further suspect descriptions available at this time. The suspects and suspect vehicle remain at large.
Anyone with information about this incident or who may know the identities or whereabouts of the suspects or suspect vehicle is asked to call 911 or Seattle Police and refer to this incident. Anonymous tips are welcome.
Speaking of cars – for the second time in two weeks, someone has taken Trevor‘s car:
I regret to inform you that my Nissan Maxima got stolen again last night. It’s been exactly two weeks since the first theft. Last time we were able to find it thanks to the WSB and I was hoping that the blog might help us again. We already filed a report with the police and are currently driving around White Center (where it was found last time) looking for the car.
Here’s the report from two weeks ago, which includes a photo of the tan/beige ’92 Maxima, license 275USV.
And finally, from Sarajean in the 5900 block of 49th SW:
(Friday) night a neighbor saw two “kids” (teens/20s) goofing off in a QFC shopping cart around 11 pm. (Saturday) morning around 10 am, she came over for a play date and noticed the door to our Subaru was ajar. It was parked in the alley next to our garage. We went out to investigate and found several items missing: two winter hats, $20 in small bills, a bottle of wine that had rolled out of the grocery bag & we’d forgotten to go back for, and a nice pair of binoculars. Overall not much, but still. Nothing was damaged. A police report has been filed.
