September 12, 2012 · Updated 3:17 PM
Auburn police responded to the following calls for service, among many others, between Sept. 2 and 10:
Assault with hands and fists: 8:32 a.m., 2014 I Street NE. Firefighters called police after realizing that a guy who’d earlier complained to 911 about having trouble breathing had actually been badly beaten. The injured man couldn’t tell police much about what had happened to him, and firefighters drove him to a hospital for more treatment.
Trespassing: 4:20 p.m., 1702 Auburn Way. Because he was such a pain, a man got the heave ho and the “don’t come back now” from Top Food and Drug.
Motorcycle theft: 11:45 p.m., 1500 block of O Street Southwest. Somebody stole a man’s motorcycle from his place of work.
Theft: 8:01 a.m., 2100 block of Auburn Way South. A called his bank to cancel the credit cards in his missing wallet and learned that somebody had already used them.
Arson of uninhabited public property: 11:01 a.m., 30809 124th Avenue Southeast. Having started a camp fire in the wood line at Lea Hill Elementary, a group of kids had no idea that that old tire nearby would make their camp fire burn that much hotter and leap out of control that much more quickly. Firefighters extinguished the fire and forwarded a report to the Fire Marshals office.
Theft: 7:19 p.m., 700 E. Main St.
A customer who’d been looking at a demonstration Motorola Droid Razor Max at Verizon Wireless suddenly commandeered the device, ran out of the store and disappeared. The phone retails for about $600.
Traffic offense: 7:40 p.m., 900 block of 8th Street NE. For reasons unknown, a motorcyclist left the street and ran into a tree, trapping his leg between the motorcycle and a parked car. Aid personnel took the guy to ARMC for treatment.
Theft: 6:50 a.m., 762 Supermall Drive SW. A woman parked her car at the Supermall and somebody broke into it and stole a firearm of unknown make and model.
Git out!: 7:22 a.m., 1436 Auburn Way S. Even among that highly caffeinated, early-morning, java-slurping and guzzling crowd at Starbucks, a woman made such a distinct nuisance of herself that, well, she just had to go, that’s all.
Theft: 11:37 a.m., 600 block of L Place Southeast. Male accused female of stealing his phone, female denied stealing phone, male denied he ever accused female, phone still missing.
Vandalism: 5:34 p.m., 1450 block of 8th Street Northeast. Police arrested a man by citation for malicious mischief after he damaged another person’s vehicle.
