Officers Successfully Resolve Domestic Disturbance

A 33 year old woman was arrested for domestic violence assault after a family disturbance in North Seattle.  On July 23rd at approximately 11:46 p.m. officers responded to a domestic disturbance at a residence in the 300 block of NW 90th Street.  The initial 911 call (later determined to be false) reported that shots were fired inside the house by a male family member with a gun.  Patrol officers surrounded the residence and requested the assistance of Anti-Crime Team (ACT) officers and negotiators. 

Once officers had contained the scene it was determined that the only person still inside the residence was the female suspect.  After numerous unsuccessful attempts were made to get the suspect to come outside, ACT officers made entry into the residence and arrested the 33 year old female suspect without further incident.

The victim, a male in his 40’s, was punched, bit, and cut on the face by the suspect, who is believed to be his sister. 

SFD medics responded to the scene to treat the victim.  He was then transported to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of his non-life-threatening injuries.

Further investigation indicated that there had been no gunfire, and no guns were discovered inside the residence. 

Alcohol however, did play a role in the incident. 

The suspect is being booked into the King County Jail for misdemeanor Domestic Violence Assault.

This remains an active and on-going investigation.
