SAMMAMISH POLICE BLOTTER
Sammamish police on May 29 arrested a 43-year-old Seattle man for investigation of fourth degree assault, a police report said. The man had been dating a Sammamish woman who lives in the 23500 block of Northeast 21st Street and the two broke up in April. On May 29, he showed up at the woman’s house, intoxicated and with his 5-year-old son in the car, the woman told police. She offered to drive them home for their safety, and was trying to buckle the boy into a safety seat when the man drove off, hitting her in the thigh with the car door. The man left, then returned and yelled obscenities at her and pushed her, the report said. State Patrol troopers told police that the man’s car rear-ended another vehicle a short time later on westbound Interstate 90 and did not stop, a report said.
Someone took a lawnmower to Margaret Mead Elementary school on the night of May 22 and set it on fire using a liquid accellerant, police said in a report from May 23. The burned mower was near an outbuilding and left a large scorch mark on the ground.
Someone broke into a home in the 2000 block of 228th Place Northeast and stole a black Binelli Nova pump-action 12-gauge shotgun, a Springfield A3-03 rifle with a Tasco scope and about 60 CDs, the owner told police on May 29. Loss was estimated at more than $1,400.
The owner of a home in the 22900 block of Northeast 21st Street told police on May 26 that someone ruined three locks on the home by filling them with superglue; in an earlier incident, someone put a hose into the home and let the water run, ruining 500 square feet of carpet and 1,000 square feet of wood floor. Damage from both incidents was estimated at $4,180.
A woman who lives in a home in the 1600 block of 242nd Avenue Southeast told police on May 27 that someone had entered their home through a window, eaten half of a “yard of bubble gum” and apparently stole nothing else. The residents found bubble gum on the floor in the bathroom, some type of blue liquid on the floor in the kitchen and several items misplaced, according to a report.
