Bainbridge blotter | No comment

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


9:05 p.m. Police received a call about an alleged domestic assault.

The caller overheard a confrontation between a 51-year-old Bainbridge woman and her 74-year-old male roommate. The man was supposedly driving himself to the hospital, seeking treatment for a hand injury.

Police called the man, who said he’d hurt his hand falling down the porch steps. He told police he and his roommate were discussing her medication, as she was refusing to take it. He’d tried to pull her sandwich away when she grabbed his jacket sleeve. He’d pulled free and, in doing so, slipped and fell off the porch, landing on his hand.

He stressed that he was not assaulted and there was no need for police to speak to the woman.

Police did attempt to visit her at home, as the original caller had not actually witnessed the dispute, but the woman refused to open the door after a short conversation.

A report was filed.
