    Was wondering why police are combing through Belvidere. Thanks!

    I hope they catch the robber, her unnerving.

    Seriously? My worst fears. Sorry. After 65 years in west Seattle I left.

      A gas station getting robbed is your worst fear?  Wow, I can think of a lot of things that are worse than that.

    We were parked across the street and wondered what all the cops were doing.

      @D- what were some of the possible scenarios you posed?

    I usually think of North Admiral as a safe neighborhood compared to Delridge, or Highpoint or westwood in West Seattle.  I was at a children’s  Halloween party organized at ALKI beach that same Friday night , and we (myself and my two little kids) walked home at 9 :30 pm on the very same Friday night, to lower Admiral hill, how scary to think that just up the hill was a Robber with a ski mask.  What is coming of this neighborhood. Do we need to do more neighborhood watch or meet with the police?

      IIRC, the bank on the corner of California and Admiral was robbed a few years back.  Also scary?  A gas station robbery is not, unfortunately, a massive crime wave that suggest “what is coming of this neighborhood”..What I think is more frightening are incidents like the woman walking across the street from that same gas station last year (?) that was randomly attacked in broad daylight by a woman that, I think, had mental problems.

Sorry, comment time is over.
