A sampling of Kent Police incidents Jan. 26-31:
Multiple assaults: 9:32 p.m., officers arrested a suspect for pointing a handgun at a man and his wife after they interrupted him prowling their vehicle. The suspect was booked into juvenile detention for two counts of second-degree assault, third-degree assault for kicking and spitting on an officer, resisting arrest, plus two warrants for fourth-degree assault domestic violence.
Street racing: Three officers assisted State Patrol on a racer emphasis. One vehicle was contacted after racing and the driver was arrested for being in illegal possession of a firearm and racing. The other four occupants were also arrested for street racing type crimes.
Assault: 6:05 p.m., officers responded to the 2400 block of South 249th Street for a female who was reporting that her boyfriend assaulted her. The suspect in this case was naked and high on acid. All three officers tried to de-escalate him, but he was not of a rational mind. All three officers moved in to detain him quickly and decisively, therefore very little force was needed to detain him. The suspect was involuntarily committed.
Carjacking: 1:37 p.m. a victim was driving out of the parking lot at Pacific Highway South and Kent Des Moines Road when he was confronted by a white male wielding a shotgun standing in his path. The suspect ordered the victim out of his car, then drove off with the victim’s vehicle.
Robbery: 9:44 p.m., a masked gunman entered the Little Caesar’s restaurant at 27020 Pacific Highway S. He was able to get away with around $200-$800 in cash. The suspect was described as 6 feet 4 inches tall, male, wearing a hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. The suspect wore a full-faced ski mask during the robbery.
Bow and arrow fired: 10:35 p.m., a suspect shot a bow and arrow at a victim, just missing her foot. The victim safely exited the residence with her children, taking his gun out of the home as well. After surrounding the unit, public address announcements were made and with successful negotiations, the suspect exited the residence without incident.
Rescue: 12:40 p.m., officers located a suicidal female in the upper portion of Earthworks Park behind the old Top Foods store. The female had climbed up onto a partially downed tree which overhung the ravine by about 15-18 feet. She had tied a rope onto the downed log and noose around her neck. The downed tree was caught on another standing tree, which made it extremely difficult to reach her with the slope of the ravine and the slipperiness of the tree. As one officer talked with the female and established a great rapport with her, other officers on scene had several contingency plans in place in case she decided to jump. Another officer was able to work his way underneath her and cut the rope so she couldn’t severely harm herself even if she did jump. A final officer climbed the ladder and was eventually able to safely escort her down where she could be provided with further assistance.
Gunshot wound: 7:25 p.m., a victim was transported to Valley Medical Center in Renton by his girlfriend, after receiving a gunshot wound to the leg at Hawthorne Suites. Officers learned that the victim and his girlfriend were in their vehicle in the hotel parking lot and were confronted by suspects with a gun.
