Received a note overnight via Facebook from Debbie, who says:
I was nearly mugged on the corner of Hudson and California [map] at 9:45 pm! Someone tried to grab my purse off my shoulder while my friends and I were walking by; they unfortunately misjudged my ferocity and failed.
Meantime – we also have two West Seattle Crime Watch alerts that came in this week but hadn’t been included in a roundup yet – a “walk-in break-in” and a car prowl – (added 9:20 am, also a third – another car break-in report that just came in) read on:
First, this resident didn’t want to be identified:
I live at 41st and Charlestown [map]. At 4 pm Saturday after working in the front yard, we went to back of house via our alley with mower and tools. I was at the back of the house for maybe 20- 30 minutes. Front door was open with screen door closed. When returning to bedroom which is close to front door I noticed that various jewelry was missing off dresser and nightstand. Someone obviously walked in front door, quickly went to bedrooms and took gold , and silver rings etc. Nothing else was taken, not even cash.
Second, from Deana:
On Saturday night Sept 27th, we had an attempted car break-in on our Ford F150 on the 48 hundred block of 48th Ave SW between Edmunds and Hudson streets [map]. Luckily the thieves were unsuccessful. However, they did damage the driver’s side lock.
Now, the 9:20 am addition, from Jon via Facebook:
My car was broken into near 40th Ave SW and SW Graham St. [map] Items stolen included a GPS unit, hiking boots, trekking poles, and several car chargers (all of which were hidden from view…).
He says it happened last night.
