Man attempts to kidnap 2 girls at knifepoint

Girls were able to jump out of suspect’s car at an apartment complex and call 911.

July 30

Trespass: At approximately 5:48 p.m. near the 29800 block of 20th Ave S., the homeowner’s son was inspecting the vacant rental and found an unidentified woman trespassing who left when the son challenged her. No one should be in the home right now as it is being repaired. The homeowner lives next door and is on hospice. Officers spoke to the homeowner’s sister, who is the owner’s power of attorney, and she told officers no one is allowed to be inside the home. The sister advised to call anytime to verify if anyone found on the property is authorized.

Child fell out of open window: At approximately 7:12 p.m. near the 1000 block of SW 320th St, the reporting party called 911 after their 1-year-old son climbed over the bed headboard near a bedroom window and fell two stries onto the concrete below. The child was concious but crying with an obvious head injury. No foul play was found; this incident appears to have been an accident. The child was taken to Harbowview.

July 31

Vehicle on fire: At approximately 4:35 a.m. near the 1800 block of S. 285th Place, a man called police to report that his vehicle was on fire in front of his apartment. The vehicle has extensive fire and smoke damage inside. The man said there were two unknown subjects in the parking lot shortly before his vehicle caught fire. He was unable to extinguish it himself. A fire investigator was requested to take over all investigations into this matter.

Possible carjacking: At approximately 1:25 p.m. near the 2100 block of SW 356th St., police were dispatched to a possible carjacking in progress at the Valero gas station. A man was seen getting into a newer black sedan with kids inside of it. No weapons were seen. The man then exited the car and left the scene on foot. The woman in the car declined police assistance. The woman then left the area and never called 911 to make a report. The man was later seen at Union Apartments, and the woman said the man was her uncle. The woman denied being at Valero and said she did not need assistance. The man left the apartments on foot and was not identified. The police report said this incident was unfounded.

Car wash damage: At approximately 2:45 p.m. near the 1700 block of S 356th St., the manager of Chevron called 911 to report damage to the car wash. The manager said a pickup truck that was too tall tried to enter the car wash, causing damage to the top of the truck and dryer rack of the car wash. The manager gave a partial plate number but had no other suspect information.

Aug. 5

Assault: At approximately 2:43 p.m. near the 33300 block of 20th Ave. S., two roomates were involved in an argument. The female half entered the male half’s room with several knives. The woman then attempted to stab the man while he was sitting down. The man put his hands up in defense and suffered some minor cuts from that. The woman then left the man’s room so he was able to call 911. When officers arrived they were able to talk the woman out and arrest without incident. The male was treated by King County Fire. Officers photographed the scene and booked evidence accordingly.

Attempted kidnapping: At approximately 8:49 p.m. near the 29200 block of Military Road S., officers responded to the Homestead Apartments where two juvenile females said they were forced into a car at knifepoint by a man they had met online earlier that day. The man apparently located the girls at Southcenter Mall in Tukwila before he forced them into his car. He stopped at Homestead Apartments where the girls were able to jump out and call 911. The girls were not injured. This case has been passed on to the Tukwila Police Department.

Aug. 6

Room break-in: At approximately 9:36 a.m. near the 2200 block of S. Star Lake Road, unknown suspects broke into the west cabana and vandalized the room. They ate food that was inside the room and threw billiard balls at the TV and walls. The suspects broke into several rooms and stole the CCTV footage. Officers dusted for prints and pulled one from a cup. There is currently no suspect information.
