SEVERAL CHARGES

• A man surrendered Oct. 20 in the lobby of the Enumclaw police station.

He was taken into custody and booked; bail was $25,000.

UNWANTED

• Police responded to a Fell Street address at 11:15 a.m. Oct. 19 after learning of an unwanted man on the grounds. The subject was gone upon an officer’s arrival and police noted they would contact the Enumclaw School District to determine if the district wanted a “trespass letter” issued. The district agreed, a letter was prepared and was to be given to the suspect.

NO PROBLEM

• Police received two 911 calls, both hang-ups, the evening of Oct. 19. The calls had originated from the manager’s office of a Chinook Avenue apartment complex. The office was closed, but a neighbor reported seeing a couple of kids running from the area.

THEFT FROM AUTO

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

• Police received a 911 call at 8:28 p.m. Oct. 18. A woman's voice could be heard, yelling at someone to get off of her.

Officers responded to a Florence Street address and took a man into custody for fourth-degree assault and interfering with a domestic violence report.

TRAFFIC COMPLAINT

• Police responded the afternoon of Oct. 18 to a Wells Street address after hearing of a vehicle that had been driven on the curb, striking a dog. The pet appeared unhurt and the driver denied hitting the animal. The driver was counseled about her driving and the matter was settled.
