WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Pepper-spray carjacking; midday hit-run

Two incidents in West Seattle Crime Watch so far today;

CARJACKING: Details are few on this incident reported after 11:30 pm last night. A man told police he drove to the Arco station in the 7300 block of Delridge Way to meet a woman he knew. She was there along with a man the victim did not know. The man attacked the victim by pepper-spraying him in the eyes, and then took off, with the woman, in the victim’s 2016 Chevrolet Malibu. (So far no further description of the vehicle or thieves.)

HIT-RUN: Kylei is looking for witnesses to the hit-run in High Point that left this damage behind:

I wanted to report a hit and run in hopes one of our neighbors may have seen something. On Tuesday, March 16th my husband’s parked blue Ford Mustang was hit and run sometime between 12-12:30. The driver’s side was hit and the car was moved almost completely onto the curb. Our Ring camera didn’t pick up the event but you can clearly see the car was moved significantly between that time period. The car was parked on the corner of Holly and 34th. This is a busy area for people walking dogs; it’s hard to believe someone didn’t see it happen. Any information or tips are appreciated!

    Pick up those pieces left in the road there. Sharp auto body tech can often identify the make/model/year of the vehicle that left them.

    Was this during the day time or at night – there was a late night incident in this area with large loud truck racing around during the late night hours in this neighborhood so just curious if it might be related.

    I’ll add on to Bolo’s answer – oftentimes those plastic parts from the other car will have part numbers on them.  Do a simple google search to look up what vehicle it came from.

    How many carjackings/car thefts is that from either the Arco or Chevron (formerly Shell) on that corner in the last 3 months? 3 or 4? Getting out of hand.

    I would be leary of being friends with someone who would have this attacker with her.  I hope she was not being forced to call someone she knew with a car?  It does seem like this Arco has many weird happenings around that area.  Lets hope the lady friend can identify who this person was.

    So the guy tells the cops who the woman is and she either turns the unknown guy over to the cops or takes the heat all on her own. Brilliant criming right there. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
