CRIME WATCH: Stolen white Legacy and U-Haul truck; arrests after neighbors’ fight

Three notes in West Seattle Crime Watch tonight:

STOLEN CAR: West Seattle resident Dan‘s car was stolen in Burien and he’s getting the word out regionally to watch for it:

My car, a white 1997 Subaru Legacy GT wagon, was stolen this afternoon (around 1-1:30 pm) in Burien on SW 157th in the parking lot between Azteca and Value Village. License plate #2869 LEM. Video footage from Azteca shows two men pull up in a green Ford Ranger, steal the car within a few minutes. Both sped out of the parking lot after stealing the car.

It’s been reported to police/sheriffs in Burien; we’ll add the number when we get it. (Added: C23001615)

    WSB, would you consider amending the title of this post to include the hate crime component? That seems the most concerning part of that story, and highlighting it could help neighbors stay aware.

      Hate-crime charges can result from something as simple as one mutually-combating party fighting over a Seahawks game calling the other party a racial, religious, sexual, or ethnic slur and a plaintiff or witness(es) requesting the charge. Or, it can be from a much more serious attack based on a hate catagory itself. It can range from being a very vague or very specific incident.

        Rhonda, click through on the details:” When officers contacted the 54-year-old male victim, he reported the upstairs neighbors attempted to damage his vehicle and was calling 911 to report the incident. As the male victim walked back to his apartment, the 38-year-old female suspect yelled out racial slurs and threatened to kill him. The female suspect followed the victim as he entered his apartment, forcing the door open as he attempted to close it.The female suspect threw swinging punches at the victim as she entered the apartment. Soon after, the 40-year-old male suspect entered and began throwing punches at the victim too. The male suspect said racial slurs and threatened to kill the victim as well.”
