Two reader alerts to share this morning; both came in last night: One, a man who turned up in a family’s yard; the other, two men caught on a surveillance camera stealing metal including a wheelbarrow:
First, the mom reporting this sighting does not want to be identified:
We live in the area of 44th Ave SW and Dakota [map] – today at approximately 3:00 PM our two girls were playing in the back yard and noticed a man standing in our front yard – likely close to the small gate dividing the yards. They said he looked like had just finished peeing because he was buttoning up his shorts and then he waved to them. They described him to be a white male, curly black hair and a mustache. It is unclear on his age. Seattle Police responded and took a report. Sounds to be a sex offender and quite alarming that he would come onto our property.
Second, a clip from Marc’s surveillance cameras near 13th SW/Trenton [map] in Highland Park. We do not show faces or use names or other fully identifying information for people who have not been charged/convicted of a crime, but the faces aren’t recognizable here:
Marc says he’s had surveillance cameras covering the driveway ever since a break-in three years ago. He’s wondering if anyone else saw these men and noticed what vehicle they were driving, maybe even took down a plate; police have taken a report (10-220076) if you have information to contribute to the investigation.
