The following information was compiled based on City of Renton police reports.
A Renton man was arrested after a domestic dispute in a moving vehicle on July 24.
A witness reported to police seeing a man and woman in an argument while driving in the area of 16th Street and Aberdeen Avenue Northeast around 6 p.m.
Apparently the 46-year-old man was trying to throw the woman’s purse out of the vehicle, an older model green pickup truck.
Police found the 46-year-old woman walking west on Northeast 12th Street from Aberdeen a short time later. The woman looked as if she had been crying and had redness and swelling on her chest and back.
Eventually it was determined that the woman’s boyfriend, the 46-year-old man, had hit her repeatedly in a fight and she got out of the truck.
The woman did not want the man to get in trouble and did not want medical treatment for her visible injuries.
Police caught up with the man later and arrested him for investigation of fourth degree assault.
Suspect won’t put sandwich down
A Seattle man was arrested in Renton for refusing to obey police orders and resisting arrest on July 25.
A witness reported that a 20-year-old man punched another man in the face during an argument in the 900 block of South Third Street at a little after 9 p.m.
The 20-year-old suspect was spotted by police at the Transit Center and was very uncooperative when approached.
Police asked the suspect to put down the large sandwich he was eating to which the 20-year-old repeatedly replied, “Say please.”
He eventually put the sandwich down, but would not remove the strap of his laptop bag from around his neck as ordered by police. Each time they asked the man said, “Say please.”
An officer even got out his taser and demanded the man comply, but the man kept repeating himself.
Finally, two officers wrestled with the man when he reached for his left pants’ pocket. Officers later found he was carrying a multi-tool with different knife blades.
The man who was supposedly assaulted by the 20-year-old did not want to press charges, but the suspect was arrested for obstructing a law enforcement officer.
