Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

Monday, Dec. 2

11:22 a.m. An island resident who works for a billing company reported a threatening phone call. The man told police that when he returned from the holiday weekend he received a voice message from a client who stated that he would beat up the resident’s boss if his billing statement was not corrected.

3:46 p.m. A Suquamish man reported a harassment incident on Bainbridge. The man said he had hired a Poulsbo man to do work on his boat in the last year. However, the man did not complete the job correctly and additional outside labor was required to fix the job the man had botched.

In July, the boat owner began receiving emails from the employee that contained derogatory language, such as “I fart in your general direction.” The employee demanded money for the work.

The harassment intensified when on Nov. 25, the boat owner said he found “I kill you” written on a dirty window at his wife’s place of work, a downtown Bainbridge restaurant. The employee was seen at the restaurant that day, while the boat owner’s wife was at work.
