WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Police investigating reported carjacking

8:09 PM: At Charlestown and California, police are investigating a reported carjacking. According to radio exchanges so far, they were told that a gray Dodge Challenger was taken at gunpoint by three people – two females, one male – and that the victim was pistol-whipped. We’re on our way in hopes of finding out more.

8:19 PM: Police tell us at the scene that they’re still trying to verify more details about the car – it’s either a Charger or a Challenger, and they don’t have the plate yet. They’re also trying to locate the victim, who apparently walked away from the scene – the 7-11 parking lot – though he was described as injured and bleeding.

    I hope they find the victim soon. He could be disoriented with a head injury.

    Charleston and California is not the 7-11.

      Yes, there is a 7-11 on the southwest corner, across from the townhomes at the ex-Charlestown Café site – one of West Seattle’s eight 7-11s.

      Disagree. Check your facts before you type.

    Yikes, thats a little too close to home for me. Glad I have a manual transmission car, kids don’t know how to use a clutch these days.

    I am sending good wishes to the victims.This is why we need police.

    • LR November 4, 2020 (12:04 pm)

      You are right we do need police.  High quality police and more of them.  That’s always been the case in Seattle. Sad.

    Jesus! I live right next to this 711. That is so scary. Hope everyone is okay and they catch the horrible people that did this.

    Stop the war on poverty. 

    • Question Authority November 4, 2020 (11:06 am)

      Excuse me but what does poverty have to do with being pistol-whipped and your car stolen in an act of violence.  I hope you’re not implying that if you’re poor you get to take whatever you want at whatever cost to society.

        Excellent retort .  Mr Jenkins is an odd one.

    • Joseph November 4, 2020 (11:44 am)

      So, you want to legalize car-jacking?

    • engie3 November 4, 2020 (11:48 am)

      What’s your point on this article?

      Um… what?  Assumptions are I’ll-advised 

  • Flivver November 4, 2020 (12:36 pm)

    WSB. Any updates? Mr Jenkins HUH?????

  • Concerned November 5, 2020 (11:55 am)

    Has there been any update on this case WSB? Seems strange that the victim would just go walk off. 

    • WSB November 5, 2020 (1:33 pm)

      No, I’m having trouble getting reports out of SPD this week, so I don’t have any info beyond what we learned at the scene that night, sorry.

  • Roundthesound November 6, 2020 (10:38 am)

    Maybe the car jackers were actually the victims and instead of calling the police decided to get their car back themselves? Why bother pistol whipping someone who’s car you’re stealing unless it’s personal? And that they walked away from the scene without reporting it probably wasn’t a crime committed against them, serious head injury being the exception of course.

Sorry, comment time is over.
