1:50pm – 1500 block of Summit – Possible Overdose – Man called 911 and couldn’t stop chuckling, and couldn’t say exactly what was wrong. They finally worked out that he has recently taken drugs and may have overdosed. 30 year old white male, alert & conscious
2:15pm – 23rd & Madison – A dumpster has rolled out into traffic at Madison St. Let’s hope it doesn’t find its way across 23rd to the downhill side of Madison. That could be ugly…
2:37pm – 2100 block Yesler – Domestic Disturbance/Assault – Caller is in a verbal argument with her son. The line was left open and yelling was heard in the background. The son later assaulted the mother, punching her in the mouth
2:55pm – 17th & Thomas – Assault – Caller assaulted by 4-5 subjects from Meany Middle School. Complainant is 12 years old. A good samaritan evidently saw the attack and is waiting with the kid until police arrive.

3:12pm – 400 block 25th Ave S – Domestic Disturbance – Complainant would like the boyfriend removed from the apartment. He’s doing some property damage, and then tried to leave with their child. Caller then hung up before giving any further info
3:41pm – 23rd & Jackson – Assault – Someone assaulted by several people who took off in a Black SUV registered to a Tukwila address. Left westbound. Suspects are the girlfriend’s victims. Sounds like a female involved in the earlier domestic dispute with her boyfriend had called her brother for help, and he loaded up his posse and drove up from Tukwila to give a beating to the boyfriend. Suspect vehicle last seen southbound on MLK.
3:53pm – Yesler Elementary – Missing 9 year old from elementary school. Last seen in class, didn’t meet his ride after school.

4:30pm – 400 block 25th S – Domestic Disturbance – Daughter’s boyfriend went back to the house and “caused some sort of trouble”. Caller is too distraught to give any more details. Open question: will the brother come back to continue the cycle of violence? An later call confirms that the suspects are still present and fighting, and it sounds like some new parties have joined in too.
