- Police responded to two separate incidents in the early afternoon at Fairfax Hospital and school on NE 132nd in north Juanita, one involving a 12-year-old boy and the other a 15-year-old female. In the latter case, the 15-year-old was arrested for assault after she threatened to kill herself and then assaulted another student. In the other case the 12-year-old was arrested for assault after kicking his teacher in the groin. He was taken to the King County Youth Center.
- Sometime between midnight and 7 a.m. a thief stole an air compressor, car battery charger and a toolbox full of Craftsman wrenches from a shared storage shed along Lake Washington Boulevard near Carillon Point. The resident said the shed is shared among three neighbors and one of them must have left it unlocked.
- Three packages were stolen from the front porch of a residence in the 12800 block of NE 145th Street in Kingsgate sometime between Dec. 13 and Dec. 16, the resident told police. The parcels contained computer games and $100 in gifts cards to Amazon.com.
- A 17-year-old male was arrested at a home in the 10800 block of NE 121st in Juanita for simple assault and harassment after allegedly pinning his 20-year-old sister to the floor and holding a pair of scissors to her neck. He also apparently hit her with a remote in the noontime incident.
