Arrests on Latona

(Updated: April 13, 1:44 pm removing uncorroborated information

There was an arrest last night at 4228 Latona Ave NE. According to Mark Jamieson of the Seattle Police Department:

North Precinct officers responded to that location following a 911 call.  The complainant stated that another resident had threatened him.  The victim stated that the suspect was repeatedly banging on his door threatening to harm him.  The victim told officers that he was afraid of the suspect, and another witness in the house corroborated the events of the incident.  The 46 year old suspect was arrested and later booked into the King County Jail for harassment.

That’s what we know. If you know more, please let us know.

    I live nearby and witnessed the end of this after hearing a lot of noise outside. A lot of yelling by the guy who was arrested. Amazing restraint by the police. Guy kept yelling “help me, help me” Police calmly and respectfully placed him in a police car. Guy started yelling about the violation of his civil rights, but I could not see any.

    This address is a rooming house that has had multiple visits by the police, usually to arrest someone, sometimes with automatic weapons and other guns drawn. There also appears to be drug activity originating from this address and many calls to the police by neighbors for same. There have been many attempts by neighbors to engage the landlord in the problems coming from residents of this house, to no avail. Same landlord was featured on KOMO 4 TV news story about a building he owned in the U District where residents complained that he failed to make much needed repairs to building and showed a sink hanging off the wall by the plumbing. Landlord’s comments on TV was that his tenants often cause such damage so they can get out of paying their rent. Neighbors in Wallingford have formed and, at the advice of police, have reported any (read many) incidents of drug dealing behavior and other unusual behavior in the neighborhood, from individuals who seem to have ties to this address.

    Keep calling the police.
    Keep on possible health code violations- rats? call King County
    junk on lawn.. cal City
    Keep after them- it might take 2-5 years to get rid of them, but in meantime keep things as hard for them to multiply as possible.
