Bainbridge blotter | Clingy one-time friend

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


7:56 p.m. Police were dispatched to an island apartment building in response to an argument between a recently separated couple.

Both men, 24, one from Poulsbo and one from Silverdale, were outside the building when police arrived, both uninjured and agreeing there had been no physical altercation between them.

The men said the dispute began when one of them had returned to the apartment to collect his things so as to stay with a friend while they worked out the details of their separation. An argument ensued.

Police stayed while one man gathered his things and left.


2:19 p.m. A 56-year-old Bainbridge Island woman reported she received a threatening letter from a former high school classmate who had once confessed his love for her but was then arrested for murder and jailed. She had conversed with him via letters while he was in prison, she told police, but his letters soon became sexual and threatening and she cut off contact with him.

Now released, it seemed the man had learned her address and sent this latest letter by registered mail.

Police examined the letter, but found it not threatening but instead, “it appeared [he] was trying to reach out to a one-time friend.”

A report was filed.

The woman was told if the man should come to her house to call the police and not engage him.
