Pedal powerless

A bicycle was stolen from a front porch in the 100 block of East Lake Sammamish Shore Lane Northeast before Nov. 27.


Police responded to a report of a vehicle hitting a pedestrian near Trossachs Boulevard Southeast and Southeast Ninth Way at 8:15 a.m. Nov. 27. The pedestrian told police a vehicle struck her as she crossed the street, but she did not sustain any injuries because the vehicle was moving slowly. She said the motorist left the scene after she told him she planned to file a police report. She provided police with the license plate number, and police later contacted the motorist. He said the woman was verbally aggressive and used expletives, so he drove away. Police said the incident did not qualify as a hit-and-run accident because the woman was uninjured, but told the motorist he should have remained at the scene until officers arrived. Police cited him for failure to stop.
