Victim avoids getting hit by car, gets in fight with driver | BLOTTER

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

A man was walking through a parking lot on Nov. 3 in the 17000 block of 116th Avenue Southeast when he was almost struck by a moving sports car that didn’t have a license plate.

The man jumped out of the way to avoid getting hit. He yelled at the driver, “You almost hit me!”

The driver rolled his window down and said, “My window is fogged up.”

“If your window is fogged up, you don’t pull out,” responded the man.

The driver then called him a “motherf@#$%^” .

The man approached the car when the driver said, “Gotta get my gun” and pulled out a black pistol.

The driver got out of the car without the gun and started to punch the man in the ear until he fell to the ground. He then got into the car and left the scene.

A suspect at a nearby barbershop said he saw the two men “tussle.”

Officers asked a Chinese restaurant nearby if someone saw anyone who matched the suspect’s description. The owner said he was a regular customer and he had picked up a food order minutes before the altercation. She said she didn’t know his name but that he regularly picks up food for his mother who lived in a nearby apartment complex.

Officers found the mother, who confirmed her son dropped off the food on Nov. 3 but said he did not mention a fight. She called him and asked about the incident, and he said, “It wasn’t me in the fight,” and that someone else was involved and he had already spoken to the police.

According to the police report, the officers who were at the suspect’s mother’s apartment were the only one investigating the case and neither of them had spoken to the suspect before then.

There is no further information on this case.

PERSONAL USE IS ALL: On Nov. 5, a Fry’s loss prevention officer saw a man take items worth $19 and place it in his jacket pocket.

The suspect then walked around the store and took a $50 headphones, removed it from its packaging and put it around his neck. He then tried to walk out of the store.

The loss prevention officer stopped him and escorted him to the office. When asked why he took the merchandise, the suspect answered, “Personal use is all.”

CHECK THE ID: A man went into a bike store on Oct. 31 and asked to test ride a bike.

The employee asked for his ID and credit card, but said he didn’t look at them closely at the time.

The man took off with the bike and never came back.

Hours later, the employee saw the ID did not belong to the suspect and the name on the credit card did not match the ID.

The bike is estimated to be around $570.

CAR BREAK IN: A man contacted police on Nov. 2 to report someone had broken into his car.

According to the police report, the suspect stole a backpack, a laptop, pay stubs and an Amazon Green ID badge — all estimated to value around $800.

There is no suspect information at this time.
