Three Tuesday night police responses that might have caught your eye:
WESTWOOD – DOUG GOT HIS BIKE BACK: Since our Monday morning Crime Watch reader report from Doug, whose bicycle was stolen from atop his car outside his North Delridge home when he stepped back inside to get his child, the story played out in comments – including some sightings. This one at Westwood Village from “West Seattlite” on Tuesday night, plus police assistance, got Doug’s bike back. (The thief, however, is still on the loose.)
That was around 7:30 pm. Then, two sizable police responses in the 9 pm vicinity – we heard about them too late to check out firsthand, but did get some info from police:
TRIANGLE – FIGHT: This one brought a big response to the Fauntleroy/Alaska gas-station vicinity. Southwest Precinct Lt. Alan Williams explains that two officers in the area saw a fight in progress; when they moved in, two people ran from them. They found one person “involved in fighting with the 2 suspects who ran off, but he was somewhat uncooperative.”
ADMIRAL – STREET FIGHT: This started as a confrontation between people walking across California SW by West Seattle High School and people in a car. An argument turned into an assault when one of the street-crossers got hit in the head. Seattle Fire was called to treat the wound. The alleged attacker wasn’t found, says Lt. Williams, but police had a potential lead on his identity.
