I-90 Debris Throwers Strike Again

SEATTLE – The rock throwers have struck again along Seattle freeways.  There were two more cases targeting drivers on I-90 and the I-5 ramp to I-90 in Seattle on Monday night.  A KOMO News crew was there after one of the drivers pulled over with a damaged windshield along I-90 at Rainier Avenue.  It’s the same area where four cars were hit Sunday afternoon.

The number of these dangerous and potentially deadly crimes are climbing by the day.  At least two of the men arrested are connected to a nearby homeless encampment that neighbors have been complaining about for months.  READ MORE: https://komonews.com/news/local/all-i-saw-was-a-huge-rock-in-front-of-my-face-i-90-debris-throwers-strike-again

Victim reacts after axe-wielding suspect seen breaking into apartment is freed with no charges

SEATTLE — A 46-year-old man was arrested for breaking into an occupied Capitol Hill apartment armed with an axe, a hatchet and a spiked glove was released from jail without charges Monday — after state case workers concluded he is incompetent and unable to defend himself in court.

Stanley Dion Red, 46, who has a long criminal history, and a history of treatment for mental illnesses, was captured on video climbing onto the balcony of a Capitol Hill apartment complex on June 17th. According to Henry Stelter, the tenant who was working from home at the time, Red entered the apartment and directly approached him.

“I went back, and I grabbed my pistol,” Stelter told KIRO-7 News. “At that point he’d seen me, and he started walking down the hallway towards me and he started reaching for the axe on his back. He also had a glove that had a metal spike sticking out the front of it.”  READ MORE: https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/victim-reacts-after-axe-wielding-suspect-seen-breaking-into-apartment-is-freed-with-no-charges/CWGBCFPTJJA7VC4Q6MVQUXLHWU/
