The following information was compile from Renton Police Department incident reports.

A 27-year-old Renton woman was groped as she was loading her groceries into her car on Northeast Fourth Street.

The man told her she was beautiful and she said thanks, trying to ignore him. He then grabbed her under her coat.

Earlier, the man seemed to follow here as she walked up and down the aisles in the grocery store.

Several hours later, an officer earlier assigned to the assault was dispatched to a call about a man on drugs, probably PCP, who needed help.

The officer and the 31-year-old Renton man talked about his day as they waited for fire crews to arrive to take him to Valley Medical Center for detoxification.

He didn’t remember much about what he did earlier on Northeast Fourth but the officer noticed he exactly matched the description of the suspect from the groping.

The man quickly changed the subject. The investigation was continuing.

SICK-DOG BREAKIN: The sick dog was barking louder than normal early on Feb. 3 and then ran into the bedroom and barked at the door.

Investigating, a Renton man found the sliding-glass door open at his on South Eagle Ridge Drive condo.

Missing was a purse with personal documents, including a passport and keys.

The sliding-glass door was left unlocked because they had been going in and out all night with the dog.

IPHONE SNATCHED: A 48-year-old Renton woman was robbed of her iPhone at about 9 a.m. Jan. 27 on Rainier Avenue South.

She had just gotten off a bus at the Renton park and ride lot. As she walked, she noticed a young man following close behind her. He came up right behind her and snatched her cell phone.

He then fled on Rainier. He’s described as 15-20 years old, thin build and wearing a light-blue jacket and blue jeans.

The loss was estimated at $600.
