The following are selected reports from the Kirkland Police Department for the period from Sept. 20-28. The reports do not indicate a conviction.
- A 1930s era white gold watch and a digital camera was stolen from the Totem Lake area apartment of a 51-year-old woman, and she told police she suspected the thief was her 25-year-old son, who lives in Lacey. There were no signs of forced entry.
- The 31-year-old mother of a 13-year-old boy who allegedly stole an iPhone4 brought her son down to the Kirkland Police Station to return the phone at about 4:30 p.m. Both the victim, a 55-year-old woman, and the boy and his mother are from the Kingsgate area. The boy is facing a third-degree theft charge in juvenile court.
- An unknown suspect took the screen off two open windows and entered a house on Finn Hill’s NE 124th Street sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., but the 22-year-old resident told police nothing was missing.
- A 28-year-old homeless man was arrested, cited and then released for allegedly possessing marijuana. The arrest occurred on Central Way downtown just after midnight.
- Police arrested a 33-year-old homeless man for investigation of criminal trespassing and malicious mischief after he was observed jumping over fences and running through yards near 128th Avenue on south Rose Hill. A 43-year-old man who lives at one of the residences is pressing the charges.
- Police picked up a 22-year-old Seattle man a few blocks away after he allegedly was seen stealing a bottle of liquor from the Metropolitan Market in Houghton at about 9:10 p.m. He was arrested on a third-degree theft charge.
- A 17-year-old resident of an apartment complex on 100th Avenue in Juanita was arrested on suspicion of assault after allegedly punching, choking and then stabbing in the leg his mother’s 44-year-old boyfriend. The incident at about 4:50 a.m. began as an argument, apparently over the man allegedly cheating on the youth’s mother. The victim was taken to Evergreen hospital and the youth was taken into custody. The knife was recovered.
- A purse was stolen from a 65-year-old Kirkland woman while she was using a computer in the Kirkland Library at about 3:20 p.m. -- the latest in a rash of thefts there over the last two weeks, and at least the tenth such theft at the library in the last 22 months. The woman lost the purse and $40 cash. Police found no suspect information.
- About $2,000 in cash and receipts were stolen from a locked drawer at a Carillon Point restaurant sometime over the weekend, the businesses operator told police. There were no signs of forced entry and when employees arrived to open the restaurant, they found all the doors locked. Police could not lift any fingerprints, because employees had gone about their business for two hours before officers arrived. The restaurant has no alarm system and no video surveillance.
- Someone tried to pry open the back sliding door of a house on 123rd Avenue NE on south Rose Hill between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., the 52-year-old resident told police. The unknown suspect did not gain entry.
- A 53-year-old woman who lives in Rose Hill’s 126th Avenue NE told police that unknown persons had used her Chase Bank checking account to make multiple withdrawals from last April through late September. The woman said she had never lost control of her account and had no idea how her information was compromised. Most of the withdrawals were via a gaming website based in Bellevue. She contacted the bank and suspended her account. Police have no suspects.
- An adult male Kirkland resident was taken to Evergreen Hospital with cuts to his face and two broken bones after being hit by a car while walking through the intersection of NE 80th Street and 120th Avenue NE near Lake Washington High School on Rose Hill. The vehicle was driven by a woman who was making a turn and failed to see the victim, who was thrown onto the hood of the car and then to the pavement, according to Kirkland Police Department spokesman Lt. Mike Murray. The man’s injuries were not life-threatening, and no charges were filed against the driver. The incident occurred at about 8:15 a.m.
