Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

Tuesday, Jan. 28

10:06 p.m. An employee at Streamliner Diner reported someone had stolen his bike. The bike was described as a blue, classic Schwinn cruiser with a light attached to the handle bars and a bike lock wound around the seat.

Thursday, Jan. 30

2:50 p.m. A Kitsap Transit bus was stopped at the crosswalk on Winslow Way near Ericksen Avenue, when a car that was parked backed into it. There were no injuries in the accident. The car had reportable damage.

Saturday, Feb. 1

10:51 a.m. A resident reported that his wife had woken up to the sound of their garage door opening at 2 a.m. on Jan. 27.

The couple did not check the garage until the next morning. They found the garage door open, and several Busch beer cans thrown into the bushes around their property.

The resident had reported a similar incident in late December, where someone had opened their front door in the middle of the night. There was nothing taken from the home in either incident.

Sunday, Feb. 2

2:22 p.m. A woman called police after her husband and son got into a fistfight. The woman told police that her son had been mouthing off to her.

At her breaking point, she retreated to her bedroom to get away from him. At this point, her husband stepped in and told the son to leave his mother alone and leave the house.

The confrontation quickly escalated when the son refused to leave. The father pushed the son out of the house, but the son proceeded to lunge at his father. Both began hitting each other.

The son was arrested for domestic assault, as he was the main aggressor.
