On 03-06-2023 at 0550 hours, officers responded to a call at a facility involving missing juveniles who had been assaulted. They established probable cause for one of the suspects (see 23-61967). As they were arresting him an involved party, who was not one of the victim juveniles, became extremely upset and tried to push past officers to interfere with the arrest. That suspect then threatened to stab officers and rushed at them, assaulting an acting sergeant. The suspect was arrested and held until AMR responded for a transport. He made multiple threats to kill and assault officers and their families during this time and tried to bite a sergeant. He was booked into KCJ for Assault 3. Hazard report completed.

At 0642 hours, officers responded to a 4-car collision on the westbound side of the West Seattle Bridge just west of the Delridge WY SW off ramp. Upon arrival, it was determined all westbound lanes needed to be shut down due ice covering all lanes creating a safety hazard for Seattle Fire, SPD on scene, and motorists. The jersey barrier that divides eastbound and westbound traffic was moved partially into the eastbound left lane as a result of the collision, so the left lane of the eastbound was also shut down. SDOT was requested and responded to assist with traffic control. SDOT also responded to salt the westbound lanes of the bridge. Once SDOT was finished salting the roadway and the vehicles involved in the collision towed from the scene, all westbound lanes were open for traffic. SDOT stayed on scene in the eastbound lane to address the left lane shutdown due to the jersey barrier partially in the roadway. One officer sustained minor injuries due to slipping on the icy roadway during the collision investigation.
