Two West Seattle Crime Watch reader reports this evening – both requesting your help:
STOLEN ELECTRIC BICYCLE: The theft victim’s co-worker sent the notice on her behalf, saying the bike was stolen in the Admiral area last night:
My bike was stolen last night on California Ave. Please Please keep your eyes peeled for it. This bike is very important to me. It has black saddle bags that say Rad Power Bikes, a green Army bag on the handlebars, a silver handlebar behind the seat and it’s missing the front fender.
Please help me find it so I can again be as happy as I was in this picture! If anyone has info they can contact Freshy’s West Seattle, (206) 937-4316.
QUADRUPLE HIT AND RUN: From Fawn:
I’m writing you to report an incident that occurred this morning while our 11 year old son was playing soccer at the EC Hughes Playfield. Our vehicle along with three other family vehicles were side swept by a silver sedan. The car was driving erratically when it crashed into the side of the 1st car and continued to drag along the 3 other cars. A witness was able to snap a quick photo of the silver sedan as it sped away without stopping. The driver is possibly a male, but the witness did not get a good look of identifiable features. Luckily no children or adults were struck as this a busy playfield and playground for families. The incident occurred at 29th and Holden around 11:30. Attached is a photo of the getaway vehicle, but unfortunately it is too blurry to make out the license plate.
From the photo, you can see the car is a silver sedan with a rear spoiler. The car will have obvious body damage with blue/black markings from hitting the parked cars. Any help from the West Seattle community would be greatly appreciated in helping the police identify the hit and run suspect.
Please contact officer Garth Lindelf from the Southwest Precinct Patrol and reference incident #16-418443. Thank you and I appreciate any help in bringing this dangerous driver to justice.
