This Weekend In Crime: Part 1

A bunch of bad shit happened at and around a few downtown clubs over the weekend. Here’s a rundown on a few of the incidents via the SPD Blotter:

Shot Fired in SoDo Club

On 6-12-10, at approximately  2:30 a.m., officers responded to a disturbance at club in the 3200 block of 4th Ave. The manager called 911 to report that there were 60 people in a disturbance and that a shot had been fired inside the club.

Officers arrived and found  approximately 100 people outside the club. The parking lot was cleared and a possible suspect vehicle was stopped at 4th and S. Brandon. There were no weapons found inside the vehicle and the occupants were investigated and released.

Bad Touch in Belltown

On 6/12/10, at approximately 1:30 a.m., the 17- year- old juvenile suspect was able to gain entry to a nightclub  in the 2200 block of 1st Av., using a punched WA. ID card of a 24 -year- old male.

It was obvious that the photo did not match the suspect.  While inside the nightclub the juvenile suspect was able to drink in excess.  At approx. 1:30 a.m., the juvenile suspect walked up to the 24- year- old female victim and made sexual contact with her.

The victim became outraged and confronted the juvenile suspect.  The victim’s friends became aware of the incident and chased the juvenile suspect out of the club.  The juvenile suspect ran passed bike officers with several adult male suspects chasing him.

The officers contacted the parties involved and determined that the crime of Indecent Liberties had occurred.  The suspect was taken into custody and booked into Youth Service Center.  Additional charges for alcohol related offenses on the juvenile were also requested.

Officers were unable to contact security from nightclub because of the multiple other disturbances that were occurring during bar closing.

The incident will be forwarded to the State Liquor Control Board.

Officer Assaulted Near Pioneer Square Club

On 6/12/10, at approximately 2:00 a.m., an officer was patrolling the Pioneer square bar scene at closing when he observed a disturbance and fights start near 1st Av S and S. Main St.

The officer was able to calm the situation down except for the female suspect who was determined to strike some male she was angry with. A friend attempted to stop the suspect but she was grabbed and pushed aside by the suspect.

As she again went after the other person, the officer stepped in to halt the suspect. After identifying himself several times and trying to get her to stop she used a closed fist and hit the officer in the face. While trying to get her handcuffed she also scratched the officer’s hand. No treatment for either suspect or officer was required.  The suspect was booked in to King County Jail for Assault.Suspect booked.
