While on patrol in Snoqualmie, officers were dispatched to a theft report call. A person reported that his son’s electric scooter had been stolen at the YMCA. The officer contacted the son to receive his statement about the incident. The son stated that he and a friend were walking by Snoqualmie Community Park when a person in all-black clothing started walking towards them. When the person got close, he “roared” at them.

This scared the son and his friend, and they ran away. The person started to chase after them but eventually stopped. The son and his friend decided to look back after realizing they weren’t being chased anymore and saw the suspect riding down the hill on the scooter. Because it was dark, the son couldn’t accurately describe the suspect. The officer drove around the area but was unable to locate the suspect.

At 4:05 pm, an officer was dispatched to a collision with an injury at the intersection of Snoqualmie Parkway and SE 99th ST. The reporting party stated that a motorcycle “T-boned” a truck at the intersection. When the officer arrived, he saw multiple subjects standing around the scene and a male in motorcycle gear lying down. The officer contacted the male lying down, who stated that he was able to move and didn’t have any major complaints except some pain in the groin area. The male on the motorcycle was identified. The officer then moved on to contact the individual driving the truck.

The male driving the truck stated that he was trying to cross Snoqualmie Parkway to get to the other side of SE 99th ST when traffic obstructed his view of the biker, which resulted in a collision. The officer assessed the scene and requested a tow truck for both vehicles involved due to the sustained damage. The officer issued the driver of the truck a citation for failure to yield the right of way and exchanged paperwork with both parties involved. The male driving the motorcycle was brought to Snoqualmie Valley Hospital to be assessed for his groin pain but was released within a short time.

An officer responded to a DUI call at the Shell Gas station off Mt Si Blvd in North Bend involving an intoxicated subject trying to leave the area. The call changed to an assault in progress when the individual pushed an employee who tried to stop him from leaving. Officers were able to contact him as he exited his vehicle. The man was visibly intoxicated to the point where he was uneasy on his feet.

One of the officers was able to take the keys from the subject so that he could not drive away while under the influence. The man then rested against the police car while his mood varied from being cooperative to showing signs and verbalizing that he wanted to fight. The officers calmed down the man and helped him by giving him a ride home. The man was dropped off at his home safely by the officers.

An officer responded to a trespassing individual at the Shell station off North Bend Way. The man had walked in and out of the store and urinated on the outside of the building while in sight of an employee. The man had been given trespass orders earlier and was violating these orders. The officer was able to locate and contact the individual who was also drinking alcohol publicly. The officer explained the man’s crimes and told him to leave the area and go into a private area.

Due to previous knowledge of the individual, officers determined the potential reason for the man’s actions to be grief. One of the responding officers set up a connection with the individual to get a follow-up call from the department’s mental health professional.

At 8:07 pm, an officer was parked on the shoulder of Snoqualmie Parkway monitoring traffic and heard a loud exhaust and observed a single headlight approaching. With the radar of the patrol vehicle, he captured the motorcycle approaching 101 mph in a 40-mph zone with moderate traffic. The officer activated his emergency lights to signal the driver to pull over.

As the biker approached the intersection of Snoqualmie Pkwy and Railroad Ave, he performed a U-turn through a red light and headed back southbound towards the I-90 interchange. The biker progressed at a high speed, and the officer could not read the license plate. The officer lost sight and could not keep up with the biker but could hear the exhaust traveling all the way to the I-90 interchange.
