Avalon Way when he saw two males carrying bundles of cop- per pipe near a storage business. He doubled back and one of the suspects took off on foot. The other man stayed put and when questioned, told the officer he was waiting for some- one to help him move (although he couldn't provide the name of the person coming to help). Another officer an-ived on the scene and they found several more bundles of cop- per piping, bound with royal blue electrical tape. and a grocery cart with a bag containing gloves and a hacksaw. A third officer searched for the suspect who fled and found him a few blocks away near Har- bor Ave. and Spokane St. "sweating and out of breath as though he had been running" Officers recognized the sweating suspect as someone who has been arrested for copper theft in the past. Both men were placed under arrest and taken to the precinct. While collecting property from the suspects, police found the same royal blue electrical tape used to bundle the pipes. Police believe the copper was stolen from a nearby construction business. During breakfast at a psychiatric hospital in West Seattle last Tues- day, an employee servmg patients food and recording whether they had eaten or not was punched by a patient who wanted more food than allowed. The suspect became agi- tated when he was denied additional helpings, swung without warning and punched the male victim. The suspect was placed in seclusion and told hospital staff he was tired of the victim. "following him to his house and standing over him watching him sleep." The victim was diag- nosed with a serious concussion along with a strained back and abra- sions to his eye and told to take ten days off of work. Assault charges are pending. Around 4:30 p.m. last Thursday officers were dispatched to a strong arm robbery at a bus stop on the 9400 block of 16th Ave. S.W. The victim was waiting for a bus on the west side of the street when he was approached by a black male wearing a red and white hat and dark cloth- ing. The suspect told the victim to give up his iPod, wallet and cell phone. He refused to give up his belongings so the suspect reached into his front pocket, nabbed his iPod and fled northbound on 16th. A witness told police a second male dressed in a red jacket also approached the victim and acted as a lookout during the robbery. Police were unable to find the suspects.
