Several Kent drivers called 911 one recent morning after they spotted a woman running into traffic near Central Avenue North and James Street exposing her breasts and buttocks.
Officers arrested the woman for investigation of disorderly conduct after a short chase through town that ended with the woman running topless into a restaurant, according to the police report.
Police responded to the intersection of Central Avenue North and James Street at about 9:58 a.m. Aug. 6 to look for a woman described as white, in her 40s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a medium build and brown hair.
An officer saw the woman lift up her shirt and drove toward her in the Chevron parking lot, 631 Central Ave. N. The woman yelled she needed a Pepsi and darted through the parking lot. She then ran out into traffic across James Street, which caused several drivers to brake and swerve to avoid hitting her.
The woman ran down a nearby alley, pulled her shirt off and threw it on the ground. The officer noted she was not wearing a bra, so her breasts were fully exposed. The woman ran inside the El Sabor restaurant, 405 Central Ave. N., and sat at a table before she curled up on the floor in a fetal position wailing loudly.
Several patrons with children left the restaurant after the woman entered, causing a loss of sales, according to the restaurant manager.
The woman didn’t explain to police why she decided to expose herself.
