WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Police search in High Point

(Texted photo)

5:53 PM: A police search is under way in High Point, centered at 32nd and Juneau but stretching for blocks around. We don’t know yet what led to the search but they’re seeking a suspect who might be armed. More as we get it.

5:56 PM: Cross-referencing a case number heard in police-radio communication, the suspect they’re seeking might be linked to a robbery in the area a week and a half ago.

6:17 PM: According to radio communication, the suspect is in custody. Police are calling SFD for medical assistance for a dog bite.

    They’re announcing over their speakers that they’re looking for an “armed and dangerous felon”. I think they said they’re searching with a police dog, but was hard to make out.

    • WSB April 27, 2020 (6:00 pm)

      Yes, they have to announce when they’re out searching with the dog.

    • Kristen Franklin April 27, 2020 (6:01 pm)

      We heard the same, he’s apparently already shot someone(officer announced it). They have dogs out on 34th now. They blocked off the street as well.

    Police on a loud speaker are saying a robbery with shooting.  A police dog is searching the neighborhood and police asking us to go inside. 

  • Alissa April 27, 2020 (6:01 pm)

    The police set up a perimeter around my block. They are announcing over their intercom that they are chasing a robbery suspect who shot someone, they have a K-9 unit searching the area. 

    • WSB April 27, 2020 (6:14 pm)

      No shootings today but perhaps a different case. The robbery case # to which we refer was categorized as “strong-arm,” aka non-armed. But the person (whose name hasn’t been mentioned over the radio) also has a warrant so…

      • Alissa April 27, 2020 (6:20 pm)

        I have a video on my phone of the police announcing through their intercom that he did shoot someone. They also said “armed and dangerous” on the video as well. I’m on 34th and Juneau. so probably the same case.

  • Fakishki April 27, 2020 (6:02 pm)

    Police are repeatedly asking people to stay indoors.  (Can hear it from 23rd Ave SW and Findlay)

    • WSB April 27, 2020 (6:11 pm)

      They have to do that when they have the dog searching – it’s not just a safety thing, it’s also so they don’t mess up the dog’s track.

  • JD April 27, 2020 (6:06 pm)

    Yep, looking for a robbery suspect, K9 deployed on 31st Ave SW by the old folks home. 

  • Lina April 27, 2020 (6:07 pm)

    Thank you so much!  Was on my back deck (in high point) heard the voice on the speaker but could not make out what they were saying

  • WSB April 27, 2020 (6:18 pm)

    Per police radio, in custody. (And bitten.)

    • Mark Schletty April 27, 2020 (6:34 pm)

      Yea, dog!!

    • Midi April 27, 2020 (6:34 pm)

      Good dog.

    • kumalavula April 27, 2020 (7:27 pm)

      the dog gets the night off and an extra treat!

  • Katie B April 27, 2020 (6:19 pm)

    They just stopped in front of my house at corner of Lanham and Raymond. They caught the guy, heard them order someone down on the ground. Hear the dogs too.

    Curious, was the suspect a resident of High Point ???  WSBlog, after your cross-referencing on the case number, are you able to get an address for the suspect ??

  • HD April 27, 2020 (7:40 pm)

    Good job K9 officer! 

  • Virginia April 27, 2020 (7:46 pm)

    I am really curious if it was the attempted robbery/carjacking suspect the detectives have been looking for. That was a scary incident

  • JN April 27, 2020 (7:52 pm)

    Bad guy with a police dog bite? FYeah! Whoisagoodpup! !!

  • Scooterista April 27, 2020 (7:58 pm)

    Well, the dude tried to hide in our bushes next to our front door on Lanham Pl SW just south of Raymond. Our nest cam caught the entire thing. He dove under the bushes (which are pretty sparse and you could see his feet sticking out) and a few seconds later the police dog found him. 

    • jonn April 28, 2020 (8:07 am)

      Is it possible you can share a link to the video?

    • Vicariousdogbite April 28, 2020 (4:27 pm)

      Even better if you captured the dog bite!!!

  • Sillygoose April 28, 2020 (8:34 am)

    BRAVO SPD !!!!  I am sick and tired or these low life idiots running around West Seattle.  I hope he is locked up for a long time. 

  • DGo April 28, 2020 (11:54 am)

    Was this suspect a resident of the Seattle Housing Authority? He’s wanted in connection to a robbery investigation behind the SHA apartments, and he was arrested after being spotted across the street from SHA housing. It’s time Seattle Housing Authority had some accountability for its residents and their guests.
