West Seattle Crime Watch: Bail increased for vandalism suspect; toddler’s street sign stolen

Two notes in West Seattle Crime Watch this afternoon:

BAIL INCREASED FOR VANDALISM SUSPECT: We reported early Wednesday on 31-year-old Yonas Berhane, arrested near California/Raymond after allegedly vandalizing at least 10 vehicles and harassing/threatening people. At a hearing this morning in a King County Jail courtroom, Berhane’s bail was increased to $10,000, and additional charges were filed, according to the docket – he now faces two charges of harassment and eight charges of vandalism. He is due back in court on August 17th.

TODDLER’S STREET SIGN STOLEN: You wouldn’t expect to see a street sign for Corliss Avenue in West Seattle – it’s way up by Northgate. If you do, it might be the one Justin is looking for:

Last night, someone walked off with our decorative street sign (purchased from the city of Seattle). Our son shares the name.

It happened in the southeast Gatewood area. If you find/see it … let us, and police, know!

    Thanks WS blog for the help! We hope it was some intoxicated person who grabbed the sign and tossed it somewhere nearby.

    well, that sucks…poor kid…and Corliss goes all the way down to Gasworks through Wallingford…a friend of mine lives at 38th and Corliss :)

      “North End,” then. Google Maps took me to Northgate and it didn’t go any further.

    Dang sorry that sucks. We’ll keep an eye out for the sign.

    Hi Justin!

    Thieves suck :(
    Really hope you and your family get the sign back.

    Hi Jeanine!
    Yes they do :(

    Didn’t realize that Corliss extended south as far as Gasworks. I used to live on Corliss, north of Northgate, near N 134th.
    Just a note that you may want to check with the metal recycling places for your sign. I suspect that someone nabbed it because it was metal or if someone discarded it, the metal scavengers will grab it.

    What a cute little guy. Hope he gets his sign back!

    I have a Corliss ave sign from Shoreline I can part with, found it cleaning out my Dads place after he passed away. Will contact WSB with contact info.

    Really? That would be swell!

Sorry, comment time is over.
