Lawn equipment

stolen from church

A lawn mower, leaf blower and lawn edger were among items stolen from a small outbuilding between May 31 and June 1 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on Wells Avenue South, according to Renton police.

A lock hasp on the outbuilding’s door had been cut off, presumably with bolt cutters, to gain entry, according to police. A church employee who lives nearby heard nothing unusual.

Also stolen were two, one-gallon plastic gas cans and a set of hand tools in a soft plastic carrying case.

Husband cited

for assault

A Renton man was cited June 1 for investigation of fourth-degree assault, domestic violence, after his wife told police he slapped her in the face at their apartment on South Puget Drive, according to Renton police.

Their son called police after witnessing the assault, according to police.

The husband told police he and his wife were arguing and began punching each other around. He told police that was pretty routine. The wife told police, through her daughter acting as an interpreter, that her husband was preventing her from leaving the bathroom. She attempted to push him aside, according to police.

The wife was treated by medics and her husband was booked into the Renton jail.

Computer gear, gun


Computer equipment, clothing, a handgun and ammunition were stolen from an apartment on Southwest Fifth Place sometime between the evening of May 31 and the early morning hours of June 1, according to Renton police.

There were no signs of a forced entry, according to police.
