Bainbridge blotter | Bad connection on new phone

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


7:47 p.m. Police were called to a house on Sunrise Place in response to an alleged assault involving a 50-year-old Bainbridge Island man and his wife’s nephew.

The man told police his wife’s nephew had come to the house unannounced and pushed him when he would not allow him inside.

The nephew does not live at the residence but does sometimes visit, the man explained. When he saw him coming up the driveway unexpectedly, he went outside with a phone and the other man’s mother on the line, hoping she could talk to him and find out why he’d come.

When he attempted to hand the younger man the phone, the nephew pushed him against a banister at the bottom of the stairs. When he turned, he was pushed again and the other man went into the house’s office room and began searching for something.

After a few minutes he left, and the man locked the door behind him.

The man was uninjured and had no bruises or redness on his body.

Police spoke to the nephew, who said he’d ordered a new phone and had it delivered to his aunt’s house. She had told him it was delivered and he’d come to get it. He said he’d pushed the other man, believing his aunt’s husband was keeping his property from him.

Police ascertained the nephew had not had permission to visit the residence, but the wife admitted she had alerted him his new phone had shown up, which she said he may have interpreted as an invitation.

Police told the nephew not to return that night, nor come to the house again until explicitly invited.
