The department responded to six residential burglaries, eight reports of thefts from automobiles, five vehicle thefts and recovered two stolen vehicles.
At 11:20 p.m., officers responded to a call of an unknown, unwelcome male subject who had entered an occupied apartment in the 21400 block of 52nd Avenue West. The suspect had made entry through an unsecured window. The lone female occupant yelled at the intruder to leave and told him that she was calling the police. The victim described the suspect as unknown race, “not white” and in his 30s. The victim told officers that the suspect acted like he was on drugs. After a lengthy K9 track, officers were unable to locate any suspects.
At about 7:30 p.m., Mountlake Terrace patrols responded to the Recreation Pavilion for an assault report. Multiple people were reporting that a female subject was being abusive to her 3-year-old son. Reports came from witnesses at Roger’s Market and the Recreational Pavilion. Investigating officers contacted the female and determined that she hit her 3-year-old son in the mouth hard enough to knock him to the ground, splitting his lip. Officers contacted CPS and were advised that there were other cases involving this family where abuse had been reported. The female was arrested and booked into Snohomish County Jail for assault 4. The child was taken into protective custody and transferred into CPS care.
