2 Friday, June 24, 2011 West Seattle Herald West Seattle police Citizen detective, 00walking in on burglary and a car prowl turns violent A woman on the 4000 block of 44th Ave S.W. received a call from her alarm company around 10 a.m. on June 14. The alarm rep asked if she wanted police called and she declined, saying she would check it out on her own. Someone had bro- ken a small pane of basement door glass with a rock, likely triggering the alarm which likely triggered a Scared thief to scurry away. By the time police arrived, the woman had left little in the way of detective work. She pointed out to police that the thief appeared to stand on an alley garbage can, gaining enough altitude to pull themselves over the fence and into the prop- erty by grabbing onto a garage rain gutter (that was now dented). No usable prints were detected. A woman walked in on a burglar trying to heist a televi- sion from her bedroom, causing the white male wearing blue jeans and a black hooded sweatshirt to drop the TV and run like hell. The woman was fine but her TV didn't fair so well in the drop, suffering a Shattered screen. Occurring on June 12 around 1 a.m. on the 5600 block of California Ave S.W., the woman had only left her apartment for 15 to 20 minutes and returned to find the man inside. K9 units were called in but were unable to establish a track. What started as a car prowl evolved into a strong arm rob- bery. A man arrived home around 3 p.m. on the 8400 block of 9th Ave S.W. and parked his pickup truck on the side of the house. After going inside for a few min- utes he came outside and found two teenagers described as black males, approximately six feet tall with shaved heads and black clothing inside the truck. He approached to stop the car prowl and one of the teens punched him in the face, resulting in a visible cut above his left eye. The teens fled .on foot with a purple iPod and GPS unit and were long gone by the time police arrived. Robberies by block: Corner of S.W.
