Knife cuts, family problems: Snoqualmie police, fire calls

Police and fire agencies in the Snoqualmie Valley responded to the following:

King County Sheriff's Office

Friday, April 16

Physical distrubance: At 3:30 p.m., an officer on patrol was dispatched to an address for a physical disturbance. An employee was having problems with a customer. The officer arrived and spoke with the assailant and observed a cut on the back of his hand that was noticeably bleeding. The officer asked what happened and the assailant said he had a knife set that he wanted to return. He bought the knives at another store in Oregon but discovered a knife missing. He called the Oregon store and they said he could return it and they’d give him the missing knife. He took it to the North Bend store but the employee said he could return the knife set but she’d have to charge him Washington state sales tax. The employee said unless he had an Oregon state ID, he would have to pay the sales tax. The suspect walked to the new knives and was going to take them and leave the old ones. A scuffle occurred between the victim and assailant during which the assailant’s hand was cut and glasses were broken.

Snoqualmie Police Department

Monday, April 12

Family issues: At 11:02 p.m., an officer contacted three subjects at PSE Snoqualmie Falls Park. The park was posted as closed after dark. On initial contact two of the subjects were standing between a red Chevy pickup truck and a black 1991 Acura. As soon as the third person saw the officer, she jumped nervously out of the Acura, but was still ducking behind it. The officer asked what was going on and they said they were having family issues. The woman came out from behind the Acura and said that her mother had recently died and she was having problems. The officer had the three stand behind the Acura and found a small infant in the back seat sleeping. Things had been thrown around the vehicle as if it had been rummaged in, and the officer noticed a small zipper bag with remnants of marijuana. The officer asked why the car was rummaged in, and the woman answered, “Do you want to hear the truth?” She told the officer that she was hooked on cocaine and that she met her brother and his friend because she needed help. The officer searched the car and found one gram of marijuana, two empty bags near the baby with small traces of white powder and $500 in cash. The woman was taken into custody for possession of marijuana.
