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

A man contacted police Jan. 16 to report he was assaulted.

According to the police report, the man was driving on Sunset Avenue Northeast with his daughter in his car. As he approached the 4000 block, a sedan pulled out of a marijuana dispensary parking lot and onto Sunset Avenue Northeast rapidly.

The man reportedly had to slam on his breaks to avoid collision. He then honked his horn. The sedan was parked on the side of the road.

The man then drove into the parking lot because “he was afraid to pass and he wanted to see what the driver of the vehicle was going to do,” according to the police report. The sedan driver then reversed into the parking lot.

The man said he then made a poor decision to step outside his car and yell at the driver, “Are you crazy?”

The driver stepped out of his car and began punching the man. The man tripped over a curb and fell down, and the driver continued to punch him. Two women reportedly got out of the car and joined in on the assault.

The three suspects stopped punching the man when an unknown man stepped out of the dispensary and reportedly yelled, “Stop, leave him alone.”

They got back into the car and left the scene.

The victim was unable to remember the car’s license plate number.

There is no further suspect information on this case.


A man was walking down Burnett Avenue South Jan. 15 when he said he was grabbed from behind by two male suspects, taken to the ground and told to shut up.

One suspect reportedly punched the victim in the face two or three times while the other attempted to go through his pockets. The victim said he resisted and tried kicking them while screaming for help. The two suspects later fled.

According to the victim, his glasses got knocked off his face so he couldn’t get a good look at the victims. He said they were young, tall and wearing dark clothing. The suspects allegedly stole his ID, work ID badge, some notes with a work password and a Seahawks hat.

There is no further information on this case.


The property manager of an apartment complex on the 1200 block of Anacortes Avenue Northeast contacted police Jan. 15 to report a mailbox unit was missing.

She told police that a tenant approached her and asked her where the missing mailbox was.

All that was left from the missing mailbox unit were the bolts on the ground that the pedestal was mounted on. The unit was reportedly “cluster style” and was valued at $150.

There is no suspect information on this case.
