Jennifer emails that somebody tried to break into her home overnight at Northeast 100th Street and 15th Avenue Northeast.
“My fiancé and I went to bed at around 10 p.m. and woke up to the sound of someone attempting to break into our house on the front porch,” she writes.
They called 911 but the person apparently heard and ran off. “If anyone noticed anything strange or out of the blue last night please let me know so I can finish filling out the police report. Thank you.”
We also got an email about car vandalism last week from Stefan, who lives at 15th and Northeast 85th Street.
We came out to our car this morning to find the driver’s side mirror was smashed, the plastic casing about 15 feet in front of the car. Doesn’t look like there was damage to the rest of the car/doors, although there might be a smudge on one of the windows. So either we were sideswiped just enough to do the mirror, or someone drove by with a bat and intentionally smashed us.
He was also the victim of a break-in about a month and a half ago.
We’re renting and feeling pretty demoralized about Maple Leaf right now. What’s going on, this is supposed to be a nice quiet neighborhood, right? Drive-by shootings, theft, smashed cars? Ugh. Thanks for listening.
For the record, so far as we can tell Maple Leaf has no more crime than an average Seattle neighborhood.Tweet
