WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Restaurant burglary

Thanks to the reader who tipped us that Toshi’s Teriyaki in Westwood Village had been broken into on Saturday morning. We obtained the report narrative from police today. According to the report, an alarm at the restaurant led to a police dispatch at 5:43 am. They found the glass shattered in the left entry door. When the store manager arrived, they looked at security video, which showed two people approaching the door just after 4:30 am, and one throwing a large rock through it. They left in a vehicle, and moments later another vehicle returned; two people got out of it and entered the restaurant, but weren’t inside for long before turning and leaving without taking anything. The report has only clothing descriptions for the people involved; the rock-thrower was described as “wearing a gray beanie, black jacket, gray sweats, and white sneakers”; the two who went into the restaurant are described as one “wearing a black jacket, dark-colored cap, dark pants, and black shoes or boots, carrying a black plastic bag in his right hand” and the other “wearing all-dark clothing with black and white tennis shoes.” If you have any information, the case number is 22-036584.

    So, what good are those big security robot things with flashing blue lights in the parking lot if they can’t catch the license plates of cars used in these crimes?  The security at WWV is deplorable.

    Last week my Mom in Law was at Pet Pro’s getting her Senior discount :>) and as she was walking out a man confronted her for money and she shook her head and said sorry, the man then yelled at her at the top of his lungs saying “what you don’t like “N”!  I won’t say it but you all know what he said and then the employee from the pet shop came running out to help mom get away from the man and also walked her to her car.  But before walking her to her car she said to the man “you know you’re not supposed to be here on this property get out of here”!     As Auntie states the WWV security is deplorable where were they when all of this was happening, do they only have 1 person for the whole complex??? My Mom in Law is in her early 80’s can you imagine what harm this guy could had done to her if the Pet Pro EE didn’t come out and intervened!

      I had someone do the exact same thing a couple months ago when I left Vatsana’s, a couple doors down. Might be the same individual.

Sorry, comment time is over.
