From an Alki resident who didn’t want to be identified: Her son lost school-related items, including college textbooks, in a daylight car break-in on Saturday:
We live on the corner of 60th AV SW and SW Stevens. My son’s car was parked on Stevens right by our driveway. it was 8:00 am and i had been in the kitchen finishing up breakfast, my son’s car in plain sight while standing at the kitchen sink. i left the room and within seconds, someone walked up, smashed the driver’s window of my son’s car (alarm went off immediately) and stole his backpack (which included his laptop, college textbooks and personal items) and then quickly disappeared in very cold, blustery weather. He is in his final semester at the UW and this really sets him back. A police report was filed. The insurance company was called. The window has been repaired. But the frustration and uneasiness of being the target of crime is lingering.
The resident says another son later reported overhearing someone in the area talking about “let’s go hit some cars,” and planned to add to the police report.
Meantime, another reminder – West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meets tomorrow night, 7 pm, Southwest Precinct (Delridge/Webster).
