On 11-16-2020 at 1417 hours, a complainant called 911 and reported that he found a large open Tupperware box with PVC pipes and a possible detonator, with wires attached to a black box that had a light that was apparently still activated. South Precinct personnel responded to Lake Washington Blvd S. and S. Horton, cordoned off the area and contacted the Arson Bomb Squad. The items were determined to be spent firework motor tubes and a wireless fireworks firing system remote control. All commercially available items. A note on the box indicated that subjects were celebrating the outcome of the presidential election and apparently left their garbage in the park.

On 11-16-2020 at 1515 hours, a female was working inside a coffee hut in the 108 block of Aurora Ave N when two male teens approached the drive up window in a vehicle and on foot. They opened the sliding window which was unlocked and jumped through it demanding cash. One of the suspects pointed a black handgun at the victim while the other punched her several times causing minor injuries before taking money from the till and tip jar. A partial plate was acquired by the victim and additional evidence may exist. Both suspects only had eyes visible due to hoodies tied tightly around their face. The efficiency with which this robbery was completed would lead one to believe this was not the first time for these suspects.
