DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE: Officers responded Jan. 29 to a residence on 290th Avenue Southeast after a 911 call was received and dispatchers could hear a woman screaming and crying, along with a man’s voice. The situation was turned over to King County authorities, since the residence was outside the city limits.

ASSAULT: Police were told at 6 p.m. Jan. 28 an assault had just occurred at a Griffin Avenue address. A man allegedly struck another man in the face with a belt, causing lacerations.

It was determined to be a work truck and the business owner assured the damage to the Mustang would be taken care of.

SUSPICIOUS: Police hunted for a man who ran through a Chinook Avenue parking lot yelling obscenities and racial slurs. It was unknown if he had been in some type of altercation and police failed to locate him. The incident occurred at 9:30 p.m. Jan. 28.

TWO CHARGES: A traffic stop at 12:41 a.m. Jan. 27 resulted in a motorist arrested and booked for driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license. The vehicle was impounded.

FAMILY TROUBLE: A female arrived in the police station lobby Jan. 27, relating issues with her parents not allowing her to pick up some of her belongings. An officer advised her it was a civil issue, not for police.
