On 10-6-2020 at 1100 hours, the complainant lives in the Jackson Park neighborhood of North Seattle. He is a supporter of a current political candidate and actively posts messages on online social media sites. Today he found a package on his doorstep containing uncooked chicken parts soaked in presumably fake chicken blood. Inside this package were also photos of another political candidate. A handwritten note with the box ordered the victim to stop posting his pro-candidate messages. There was no explicit threat and no damage to the victim’s property. This has not happened to him before.

#2020-286532/Southwest Precinct/Third Watch:

On 10-6-2020 at 2034 hours, officers responded to the 5200 block of Delridge Way SW for a disturbance onboard a Metro coach. The bus driver requested police assistance with removing an unruly passenger. The King County Sheriff’s Office advised they had units responding but from the Tukwila area and requested SPD respond. Upon the officers’ arrival, they approached the open bus door to contact the parties involved. The suspect approached the open door, raised a personal sized can of pepper spray, and deployed the contents of the spray can at approaching officers. Both officers were struck by the spray on their clothing but were otherwise unaffected by it. The suspect ceased her assaultive behavior when a taser was produced and spark tested. Officers deescalated the situation verbally and the suspect was taken into custody without further incident or the need to use force. KCSO arrived and issued a 365-day Metro admonishment prior to the suspect being booked into the King County Jail for assault on the officers.
