FOLLOWUP: Suspect arrested in High Point search was wanted for robbery, attack

(Emailed photo, Monday evening)

As promised, we followed up this morning on the search that led to an arrest in High Point Monday evening. Turns out the 27-year-old suspect was arrested in connection with an incident we reported a week and a half ago, in which a woman was beaten and robbed in her car – here’s our April 17th report. SPD spokesperson Det. Mark Jamieson tells WSB that investigators subsequently identified the suspect and put out a bulletin for officers to watch for him. Two patrol officers spotted him yesterday; he took off, and that’s what led to the search and arrest. He is now in the King County Jail, held for investigation of robbery and assault. Court records show the suspect’s criminal history includes convictions for theft, burglary, and assault.

    Nice work, stay healthy SPD.

    Does the suspect also live in high-point?

    • WSB April 28, 2020 (12:41 pm)

      The address they were checking yesterday as his possible residence was toward the south side of what I would call HP.

    Good deal. Hope to see many more arrests of these burglarizing our neighborhoods.

    This arrest happened on my front porch. I want to personally thank the Seattle Police Department for their work. The dog who captured the suspect is Coco, who is 4 years old. Good boy, Coco! Now, let’s talk about the Seattle Housing Authority. The suspect either lives in their complex or has friends there, which explains why he keeps hanging around the High Point SHA apartments and committing crimes nearby. The SHA does absolutely nothing about these problems. A large group of their residents smokes marijuana, drinks alcohol and possibly sells drugs from a park on Lanham/Morgan Street, and the SHA turns a blind eye.

      This is Seattle.  Does this really surprise you?Keep electing the same candidates and keep getting the same results, er,  I mean lack of results.

      I feel your pain, but honestly, what do you expect them to do?  If you can’t articulate what they should do, or are afraid to say it, how much hope can you really have that anything would change?

    • PotKettleBlack April 28, 2020 (5:25 pm)

      OMG! Don, thank you so much for speaking out. It turns out that my wife also smokes marijuana and drinks alcohol. I don’t think she sells drugs, but like you said I guess that’s possible too! And we sleep right next to each other EVERY NIGHT! I never knew how much danger I was in. I guess I’m just blessed to have good citizens like you as neighbors to keep a look out for these things. Stay safe out there.

      • Please April 28, 2020 (9:33 pm)

        I don’t think your wife and this criminal are in the same category. Is your wife hanging out with a bunch of friends smoking and drinking in public? Is she seeking drugs? Is she participating in crimes? Take off your rose colored glasses and provide some discipline instead of manufacturing excuses for perpetual victims. You’re doing no one any good. 10/10 on the virtue signaling, tho. 

        • PotKettleBlack April 29, 2020 (11:31 am)

          I didn’t think my wife was a criminal either until I read Don’s post. Now that I can see clearly, I realize that one can draw a straight line between legal recreation and criminal activity. Heck, I was at Safeway yesterday trying to buy flour (they’re all out) and the couple in line ahead of me had a whole basket full of candy. At the time I thought they were just taking some simple pleasure from a sugary snack, but thanks to you guys I can see that they are possibly pedophiles! And there they were just buying their kid-snatching supplies IN PUBLIC! I’m glad y’all opened up my eyes and I can see Seattle for the crime riddled hell-scape that it truly is. And you’re right in saying that it’s time for me to take some sort of action. I think the best way to enact change is to start at home. In your opinion (and feel free to chime in here too Don) now that I’ve discovered my wife’s secret criminal activities, what’s the best way to provide her with some discipline?

          • Please April 29, 2020 (1:32 pm)

            Please. Please stop with the excuses and the ridiculous comparisons.There are people in our community that repeatedly engage in criminal activity. To pretend this isn’t happening is dangerous. Your wife – maybe she *is* a criminal, but not for the “reasons” you are sharing. I know it’s not cool (in your opinion) to suggest that there is crime in West Seattle. The original post was about a group of people regularly smoking weed, drinking alcohol, and possibly selling illegal drugs. Instead of being alarmed by this, you rush in to defend the group of people, whom you probably don’t know. Because maybe doing so feels better than actually confronting the problem. How would you explain the events above? A high crime area with that sort of behavior is better explained by…what? Injustice? Oppression? Racism? Your post was funny tho. The sad part of it was that the people you elect continue to spare the rod and spoil the collective child.

            Hope he gets charged

        • PotKettleBlack April 29, 2020 (3:47 pm)

          Please – I think we’re getting our signals crossed here. I’m in complete agreement. There’s definitely a group of people in this state (and country) that are given a much longer leash than they should, and I’m deeply disappointed in my elected officials for letting them off the hook so easy. And I think Don is right to be upset that groups like the SHA do nothing except provide safe, affordable housing, job and education opportunities, and easy childcare. However, I don’t see how programs like that can be expected to police their populations when they are clearly underfunded and completely unarmed. I mean, what are they, teachers? I think good people like me, you, and Don need to step up and provide a good example. And as far as the wife goes, I’ve given some thought to what you said and I’ve decided that tonight when she gets home from work daddy’s gonna tan her hinder something fierce! She needs to know that those legal recreational activities may be ok for those groups of people in our community that want to behave like children, but just won’t do for good folks like us. I have to admit it feels good to finally feel just a little bit empowered to discuss these things and wanted to thank you for your guidance and honesty.

      That’s incorrect. The dog was not Coco. I know the officer and the dog who got the suspect. I won’t reveal their names without permission

  • Mr. X April 28, 2020 (12:50 pm)

    You know how when a deadly weapon is used during a crime, it adds an “aggravated” level, making it even more serious? Could we propose something similar during the national state of emergency? Every crime gets an added “during Coronavirus” designation – like 2X severity, higher minimum bail amounts, higher sentencing guidelines, etc. 

    • Rr April 28, 2020 (1:25 pm)

      I recently read of just such added charges in a case of burglary that happened in my home state of Hawaii. Hopefully the same applies here. 

  • jonn April 28, 2020 (3:21 pm)

    Good Job Everyone. If it was not for cameras this would not have been possible.

  • Buttercup April 28, 2020 (3:38 pm)

    I thought people with felony convictions could not live in any subsidized dwellings. Looks like SHA has some house cleaning to do.

  • Leelee April 28, 2020 (7:12 pm)

    I walked my dog through the park with the bee garden in High Point around 1pm today, and saw 4 officers and a K-9 walking around it— any idea what they were there for?

    • WSB April 28, 2020 (8:14 pm)

      If they didn’t urge you to get out of the area, then likely something non-urgent like a followup search for evidence. No new incidents today that we’ve heard of.

Sorry, comment time is over.
