Pregnant woman arrested after stabbing boyfriend | POLICE BLOTTER

The following information was compiled from Renton Police Department case reports.

Conflicting stories led to the arrest March 27 of a 20-year-old Renton woman, who is seven months pregnant, for felony domestic violence.

She called 911 to report that the father of her child had pushed her into a coffee table as they argued, after forcing his way into her apartment.

She wasn’t sure how she got the cut on her finger.

Meanwhile, after a foot chase that started at the transit center downtown, the 19-year-old boyfriend was arrested. He had a stab wound to his shoulder and elbow; he was treated at Valley Medical Center.

He told an officer he had spent the night, at her request. They argued and struggled and she threw things at him.

He said she pulled a knife on him. He left when she went into the kitchen to get a bigger knife.

Because of the conflicting stories and the Renton man’s stab wounds, the woman was booked into the King County Jail for felony investigation of domestic violence assault.

Probable cause existed to arrest him for obstructing an officer. He’s a convicted felon with a history of fleeing from police.

Lawn mower stolen; suspect escapes

A Renton man walked into his backyard at about 6 p.m. March 21 after mowing his front lawn. He walked back a few minutes later and his $500 lawn mower was gone.

The theft was captured on closed-circuit TV, which showed a passenger jumping from a minivan and putting the lawnmower in the back seat. An officer recognized the 16-year-old teen.

The officer transferred the teen to a juvenile crisis center but later learned the teen escaped about 20 minutes after he was dropped off.

The case was forwarded to juvenile prosecutors for possible charges of third-degree theft.

Candy, Kool Aid lead to jail

A 50-year-old shopper at Walmart on Rainier Avenue March 20 hid four boxes of candy in her left sleeve and several packages of Kool-Aid in her jacket pocket.

She walked out and was immediately stopped by store security.

She was booked into the SCORE regional jail for investigation of third-degree theft. The value of the candy, Kool-Aid and t-shirts was $17.12.
