KPD Blotter: KO'd Man Falls Into Window; Cuts Need Staples, Stitches

In other cases, a man at a downtown bar assaults a woman by slipping his hand into her underwear, a Rose Hill couple returns from a holiday trip to find their home burglarized and a Bothell man is arrested on Kirkland Ave with car theft tools.


The following are selected reports from the Kirkland Police Department for the period of Nov. 22-27. The reports do not indicate a conviction.

Nov. 22

  • Sometime between 3:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. while she and a friend slept, unknown persons entered a 23-year-old woman’s Rose Hill apartment on 130th Avenue and stole two sets of keys and a purse. She lost three debit/credit cards and her driver’s license.
  • Two brothers from Juanita, 21 and 22, were arrested for disorderly conduct early on Thanksgiving morning after one started a fight at Juanita pub. The other brother was also charged with obstructing an officer for continuing to interrupt and disrupt officers as they investigated the alleged assault. The victim of the assault was a 30-year-old Kirkland man, but no one at the pub was willing to serve as a witness. So the brothers were hauled away and booked on the two charges.

Nov. 24

  • A 24-year-old Bothell woman called police at about 1:49 a.m. to report that a recent acquaintance assaulted her in a Kirkland Avenue restaurant/bar downtown by kissing her, lifting her off the floor and sliding his hand beneath her underwear. The two had met a few days before at the bar and just before the alleged assault, he had asked her to accompany him to a vacant area of the restaurant. The suspect left the bar after the incident. Police got his name, but not a positive identification.
  • Police arrested along Kirkland Avenue downtown two 19-year-old men from Bothell and Mountlake Terrace, one for possession of tools used for auto thefts and the other for possessing marijuana and paraphernalia. The report did not indicate why the men were contacted. But police confiscated a “slim-jim” (a thin strip of metal used to unlock car doors), multi-tool, allen wrench set, two flashlights, wire snips, eight keys, a cell phone and a pair of earrings -- pink lips with gold trim. The arrests were made at about 6 p.m.
  • Stolen from a garage at a residence on 127th Place on Rose Hill sometime during the previous four days were a case of Sam Adams beer, a 2,000-watt generator, a chop saw, worm-drive saw, ratchet set and extension cords. The victim was a 29-year-old man.

Nov. 25

  • After being knocked unconscious by a punch in the face and falling into a storefront window along Central Way downtown, a 34-year-old Lynnwood man was taken to EvergreenHealth Medical Center, where his lacerations were stitched and stapled together. The unknown suspect escaped at about 1:45 a.m. despite there being three witnesses.
  • A Rose Hill couple, both 31, returned from a Thanksgiving holiday trip to their home on 124th Avenue NE to find it had been burglarized. The couple lost three sets of diamond stud earrings worth $1,000 each, diamond and pearl earrings, a diamond tennis bracelet and necklace, two phones, two watches, jewelry box, electric saw, camera and lens, mountain bike, two smart phones and a passport. There were no signs of forced entry and police could not lift any fingerprints. But the couple reported a cleaning service had access to the home while they were away.
  • Police arrested a 22-year-old Kirkland man on assault charges aong 97th Lane near Juanita Village just before 2 a.m. after he allegedly punched a 19-year-old Snohomish man about the face and head. The suspect was talking to three female friends of the Snohomish man, and attacked the Snohomish man when he approached. The suspect then took off with a friend. The Snohomish man suffered a cut on his ear and bruises on his face. Police located the suspect several blocks away, gave him a field sobriety test that showed he was likely drunk, and took him to the jail at City Hall.

Nov. 26

  • A 79-year-old woman from Yarrow Point told police that someone stole her wallet while she was inside a gas station store on Rose Hill’s NE 85th Street just after 10:30 a.m. But video from the store’s surveillance system showed that no one entered the car while it was parked near the gas pumps.

Nov. 27

  • A resident of 92nd Ave NE on Finn Hill requested extra patrols in the neighborhood after someone overnight stole three plastic reindeer from her front yard holiday display. The 48-year-old woman feared the suspect might return and steal more decorations.
  • Checks were stolen from the mailbox of a resident along 91st Place NE on Finn Hill, and one was cashed before the 28-year-old male resident canceled them. He told police the theft occurred sometime between Nov. 25-27.
