About the police response in Arbor Heights

Thanks to everyone who messaged us about a big police response in Arbor Heights that blocked off Marine View Drive for a while near SW 104th. We just got here a few minutes ago and the response is wrapping up; police tell us they were called to deal with what turned out to be a person in crisis, who was initially very combative, and that’s why they called in extra backup. The person has since been taken by ambulance for an evaluation, and the road has reopened, with most of the police departing.

P.S. Because Seattle Fire wasn’t called in for this, it never showed up on the SFD real-time 911 log, so e-mails were the first tips we got. The fastest way to reach us 24/7 is always text or voice at 206-293-6302 – consider adding us as a contact on your phone. Thank you!

    What was the address or the block and street of the problem?

      Don’t know – we found police on 104th just east of Marine View but some were on Marine View, too. There’s no entry on Tweets By Beat yet (that usually happens when the report is filed) and as mentioned, SFD was never dispatched to this, so nothing at all on their log.

    Prayers to the one suffering.

             It was on  the water side of Marine View Drive between 104th and 106th. 

            Prayers for him and his family.
