Two arrested at Westlake Park

On October 21st, at approximately 6:50 pm, a Park Ranger at Westlake Park observed a male writing graffiti with chalk on one of the walls in the park.  He was contacted and warned numerous times to stop writing on the park monument walls.  The suspect was arrested when he refused to stop writing on the park walls.  The 39 year old suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Graffiti-Property Damage.

This morning, at approximately 7:50 am, a West Precinct patrol sergeant was at Westlake Park monitoring the event.  A man walked up and stood in front of her patrol car.  He refused to leave.  The sergeant gave the man every opportunity to leave, stating that she needed to leave to handle other duties.  Even after all the warnings, the man refused to leave.  He was arrested for Obstructing, and later booked into the King County Jail.
