Bainbridge blotter | A damaging relationship

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


7:40 p.m. Bainbridge police forwarded a report to the prosecutor’s office in which a 41-year-old Indianola woman was accused of malicious mischief after damaging her boyfriend’s car window during an argument.

Police were called by an anonymous tipster to the parking lot of the Rolling Bay Jiffy Mart, where a domestic dispute was reportedly in progress between a man and a woman.

Police arrived and found the woman right away as she was walking out of the store. At first she refused to provide any details of the alleged incident, but then said she’d been riding with her boyfriend in his car and they’d been arguing. He told her to get out and she did, then he left.

The original caller had told police the woman broke a window of the man’s car, but police saw no glass in the parking lot.

The man, a Poulsbo resident, was not immediately found.

Some time later, he was located in the same parking lot. When asked, the man said he and his girlfriend had been arguing and he’d told her to get out of the car, which she’d done, and then she’d struck his windshield with a flashlight. Police noted a small cracked portion of the lower passenger side windshield.

The man asked that his girlfriend be criminally charged for damaging his vehicle.
