FBI Seattle is seeking the public’s help in identifying the individual (or individuals) responsible for the arson of two HEARTS Pregnancy Aid in Everett last summer, offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to a suspect’s identification and arrest.

“Today’s announcement reflects the FBI’s commitment to vigorously pursue investigations into crimes against pregnancy resource centers, faith-based organizations, and reproductive health clinics across the country,” said FBI Director Christopher Wray in a press release. “We will continue to work closely with our national, state, and local law enforcement partners to hold responsible anyone who uses extremist views to justify their criminal actions.”

The clinic was vandalized on the night of June 27, 2022. Evidence of an incendiary device was recovered from the scene. It is believed to have been thrown through a window in an attempt to cause a fire.

Carjacking by gunpoint in West Seattle

Police received a report of a man held at gunpoint while his vehicle was stolen near the Genesee neighborhood of West Seattle Wednesday evening.

When officers arrived just before 7:30 p.m., the 25-year-old male victim, who was working nearby, reported a co-worker asked if he had started his vehicle. The victim then noticed his vehicle’s engine was running even though he was in possession of the keys.

As the victim approached his vehicle, it started driving away. The victim ran after his vehicle and was able to pull open the driver’s side door but observed the person driving pointing a silver handgun at him. The victim’s vehicle was last seen traveling eastbound on SW Andover Street.

Police searched for the stolen vehicle but did not locate it.
