There is a small group of what appear to be middle-schoolers that have been banging loudly and repeatedly on front doors, and running away. They are running through yards, trampling flower beds, breaking bushes etc. They are often on bikes, but sometimes on foot. This has happened in the late afternoon, early evening, and AS EARLY AS 4 in the morning. The Seattle Police would like to have a word with these kids and THEIR parents, to be sure this doesn’t escalate any further. We don’t want kids who are simply bored to end up in significant trouble. If you know these kids, please contact SPD Jennifer Danner, email@example.com, and reference incident numbers 2021-119955 and 2021-121446.
If you experience this harassment in the North Admiral neighborhood:
• Immediately call 911 with descriptions, and let police know this has been an ongoing issue. Request to speak to the responding officer.
• Obtain the incident number from the responding officer, and ask them to notify SPD Jennifer Danner and Officer Tammy Frame. Please save the incident number and any related videos from your security camera.

You want me to call 911 if I hear a knock at my door but when I get to my door there’s nobody there?
Or do you only want me to call 911 if there’s a knock at my door but when I get to my door I see a kid running away?
I… I just don’t think I’ll do that. Sorry if your flowers got trampled. I could Venmo you a couple bucks, if that’d help?July 7, 2021 at 9:00 am #1010442
Very nicely written forum about these kids and I know how much was held back to give these kids a chance because of their age. A lot of what has been done by posting these accounts has been at the suggestion of the police.
But it has become untenable. There have been repeated banging on doors and ringing bells for at least two of my neighbors that span any hour of day or night. Eggs have been thrown at one of their homes just within the past few days. Besides the frequent getting into peoples yards and gardens and trampling plants and breaking garden art.
They know what they are doing but are not afraid of any repercussions. I have spoken to one of these boys who felt emboldened enough to ride his bike by the houses again after he and his friends rode off to hide. When I asked him “What in the world do you think you are doing?” He told me tell me they didn’t have to stop and they like doing it. And he said there was nothing we could do about it. This is a middle-schooler for goodness sakes.
My neighbors do not want to be at these kids mercy anymore and truly want them to become responsible and respectful human beings before this escalates more.
This isn’t just something Venmoing “a couple of bucks” will fix. That response was not helpful and to me sounded patronizing to my neighbors plight.
Hopefully, these kids will be identified and their parents or guardians informed and will be able to help them. This is not a good situation for anyone to be in.July 7, 2021 at 11:26 am #1010450
Thanks Seattle Song for adding the additional details.
I should have noted in the post that this has been ongoing, continuous harassment that is escalating. It is well beyond normal kid prank behavior (which we would just ignore of course).July 16, 2021 at 6:40 am #1011160July 16, 2021 at 11:43 am #1011183July 16, 2021 at 11:46 am #1011185
