Jan. 29.

Gotta look good: At 12:56 p.m. in the 7800 block of Leary Way, a woman cheated a hair salon out of $65 after she paid for her haircut with a fake coupon and $5. The salon does not offer coupons and the victim realized this after the woman had already fled. Officers are continuing to investigate.

Bar fight: At midnight in the 14800 block of Northeast 24th Street, officers responded to an assault at a local bar. Witnesses said a belligerent patron threw another customer into a table. The suspect and companion fled from the scene, got into an Uber and left the scene following the altercation. No arrests have been made.

Jan. 30

Bathroom break-in: At noon in the 15800 block of Bear Creek Parkway, an unknown suspect broke into locked public bathrooms at a local apartment complex. The bathroom doors were damaged and some clothing and other items were left behind.

Not the IRS: At 2:21 p.m. in the 17200 block of Redmond Way, a woman was duped out of $17,000 by fraudsters posing to be from the Social Security Administration. The suspects told her she had a warrant for her arrest and directed her to purchase numerous gift cards. The victim remained on the phone with the aggressive callers the entire time she was out purchasing the gift cards. They threatened her with arrest if she didn’t comply. The suspects have not been identified.
