Man arrested for assaulting elderly woman in Yesler Terrace

Members of SPD’s SWAT Team responded to the Yesler Terrace neighborhood to help arrest a man who pushed a 70-year-old woman to the ground, causing a significant head injury.

At 9:04 a.m., police responded to the intersection of Jefferson Street and Broadway for an assault. Witnesses reported a man had just pushed an elderly woman to the ground, causing a significant head wound that began to bleed. Arriving officers began providing first aid to the victim and transferred care to Seattle Fire Department medics upon their arrival. Medics transported the woman to Harborview Medical Center for additional treatment.

The suspect walked away after shoving the woman, and a witness followed him to a nearby residence. Officers responded to the building and found the man’s unit. Negotiators began a dialogue with the suspect and asked him to come out, but he refused. After several hours, police applied for and were granted a warrant to arrest the man.

Members of SPD’s SWAT Team came to the scene to serve the warrant, but just as SWAT prepared to make entry, the man surrendered.

Officers arrested the 42-year-old man for assault in the second degree. After the man was initially declined at King County Jail, officers took him to HMC to be medically cleared before booking him into KCJ.

Detectives ask public’s help in Columbia City robberies

Robbery detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects who robbed a woman at gunpoint in the Columbia City neighborhood.

On Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2023, at approximately 4:30 p.m., a woman and a man drove up to the female victim as she was exiting her vehicle in the 3800 block of South Juneau Street. The man exited from the front passenger side of the car and pointed a gun at the victim. The female remained in the driver’s seat.

The male suspect demanded the victim give him her purse. The victim complied in fear of being shot. After obtaining the purse from the victim, both suspects left the area in the vehicle.

The suspects were later observed at a business in the 2700 block of Rainier Avenue South moments after the robbery. The female suspect exited the suspect vehicle from the right front passenger side, entered a store, and purchased several gift cards with the victim’s stolen credit card.

Just about a half hour later, the female suspect entered a different store located in the 1400 block of Broadway Avenue. She conducted similar actions at this store, except this time, the transaction to purchase gift cards were declined.
