Kent Police cited a woman for investigation of malicious mischief after she reportedly packed her ex-boyfriend's stuff in her vehicle and later tossed a Xbox, dishes and other items out of the car after he said he wanted to end their relationship.
Officers responded to a call at about 10:53 a.m. March 25 from a man who said his ex-girlfriend was attempting to hit his vehicle with her vehicle near 104th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 260th Street, according to the police report.
The man told police he had dated the woman for about a year but she started to become violent so he decided to end the relationship. On March 23, she reportedly threw a remote control at him and yelled at him.
The woman told the boyfriend she would meet him at the Goodwill store parking lot on the East Hill to give him his stuff. When the boyfriend showed up at her apartment, she had packed her vehicle with his stuff. When he tried to remove his items, she sped off in the vehicle.
The boyfriend followed the woman in another vehicle and she reportedly would brake suddenly and later turned around the vehicle in an attempt to run into his car.
The woman then stopped the vehicle and started to throw the boyfriend's items out of the car, breaking a Xbox and dishes. She drove off with his flatscreen TV still in the car. He told officers she would probably try to pawn the $700 set.
Police searched unsuccessfully to find the woman at her Kent apartment as well as local pawn shops.

Officers responded to a call about a man walking down the road who was very upset, according to the police report.
When police showed up they found a man and a woman standing along the street. The woman told officers the man walking down the road was her son.
When officers talked to the son, he told them his mother's boyfriend has just "kicked his ass." The son said he had an argument with the boyfriend while in the car. He said the boyfriend had yelled at his mom and threatened her so he tried to verbally defend his mother, which upset the boyfriend. The boyfriend then stopped the car and started to punch the boy in the face, so the son got out of the vehicle and ran down the street.
Police later tracked down the boyfriend at a Kent apartment. His girlfriend and aunt initially tried to stop the officers from entering the apartment.
The boyfriend told police the teen had thrown food at him during the dispute in the vehicle and also called him the "devil" and put him in a chokehold from the backseat.
Officers noted that the boyfriend had recent cuts on his knuckles. They also said the son had red marks on his face.

A store loss prevention officer watched the man take two bottles of rum off the shelf, walk over to the shaving cream aisle and put the two bottles inside his pants, according to the police report.
Store security stopped the man outside the store. He admitted he took the rum and said he was going to sell it.

Officers arrested a man for investigation of fourth-degree assault after he reportedly punched his sister in the eye and hit her in the back with a curling iron.

Police responded to a 911 call from a woman who whispered into the phone that she needed help but couldn't answer any questions. Officers went to the scene and saw a vehicle pulling away from the house. They saw a man driving and a woman in the passenger seat.
After officers stopped the vehicle, they saw the woman crying and asked if she had called 911. She said she did so police had her step out of the vehicle.
The woman said she got in an argument with her brother and he punched her in the eye, held her down by her neck and hit her with a curling iron. Officers noted the woman had bruising on her back.
The brother said his sister had disrespected their mother and in Samoan culture you do not disrespect your elders so he needed to discipline her since he is the man of the house. He said slapped her butt but didn't assault her.
Other family members told police it was a family issue and nothing was wrong. The brother told police on his way to the jail that, "I'm sorry, I know what I did was wrong."
