WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen car with possible bullet hole; barefoot prowler; dumped-likely-stolen child’s bicycle

Two reader reports, plus a quick followup, in West Seattle Crime Watch (also, added 11:56 am, a police report from early this morning:

(added) STOLEN CAR WITH POSSIBLE BULLET HOLE: Just added to the list of police reports from this morning:

On 07-15-2022 at 0426 hours, officers responded to the 2500 block of Harbor Ave SW and saw an unoccupied Renton PD stolen vehicle with damage to the front driver side window. The damage consisted of what appeared to be a possible bullet hole to the window. The rear passenger side window also was damaged. Officers checked the location but didn’t locate any additional evidence of a shooting.

(back to original roundup) BAREFOOT PROWLER: From Traci:

This guy walked around my house onto my back deck (Wednesday) night around 8 pm. He tried to say something to me through the windows. I yelled at him to leave. Then he wandered into my backyard. I told him that I was calling the cops. Then finally left. Unfortunately I didn’t get him on camera. Then (Thursday) morning at 5:22 am he showed up again on my cameras shoeless. He saw me and then left. The police showed up quickly and took my info for him to be charged with trespassing. Be on the lookout around Charlestown and 33rd SW area. He has very dirty clothes on and seems to have lost his shoes. My neighbor had him on their front-door camera as well.

Others in the area reported the same man knocking on doors early Thursday.


This children’s Mongoose Racer was left in the alleyway behind Avalon Way … Looks like it was abandoned Wednesday.

P.S. – MOTORCYCLE FINALLY FOUND: Almost two months ago, Joshua reported his motorcycle stolen. He sent a note to say it was finally found this week, on Yesler Way.

    Barefoot prowler, desperately seeking shoes?

      Or small airplanes.

    It’s like humans are wild animals caught on camera ’round the house. Except the wild human is much scarier than  any of their neighborhood counterparts like raccoons, possums, coyotes…plus humans ruin and destroy everything and the planet. I hope this wild man does little to no more damage and gets caught fast.

      SH, I couldn’t agree more.  Unfortunately, humans reproduce at the rate of bacteria.

Sorry, comment time is over.
