The following are selected reports from the Kirkland Police Department for the period of Dec. 16-21.

Dec. 16

  • 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.

Dec. 19

  • 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.

Dec. 20

  • 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.
  • After causing a disturbance at the Parkplace at about 2:45 p.m., throwing a drink bottle and pulling a knife out of his pocket, a 32-year-old Kirkland man was given a warning and signed a trespass letter barring him from the store for three years.

Dec. 21

  • Staff at the Rose Hill store called police at about 6 p.m to report they had apprehended a 25-year-old Kirkland man fleeing the store with $151 worth of Blue-ray movies. Apparently a science-fiction fan, the man was cited for third-degree theft after he tried to steal boxed sets of Back to the Future and Stars Wars.
  • An unidentified woman apparently fled the north Juanita store after shoplifting more than $200 worth of items -- DVDs, make-up, push-pins, deodorant, etc. -- at about 9 p.m. Store staff did give police the make, model and license plate of the car the suspect left in, a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero.
  • Unknown burglars fled a home in the 12300 block of NE 97th Street in the North Rose Hill neighborhood after busting in the front door and setting off an alarm at about 4 in the afternoon. The culprit ransacked jewelry boxes in the master bedroom, but left with nothing.
