The police blotter feature is both a description of a small selection of police incidents and a statistical roundup of all calls to the Redmond Police Department that are dispatched to on-duty police officers. The Redmond Reporter Police Blotter is not intended to be representative of all police calls originating in Redmond, which gets more than 500 calls (emergency and non-emergency) per week.

Disorderly conduct: At 6:53 p.m., Redmond police responded to a reported brandishing of a handgun. RPD spokesperson Jim Bove said a woman was at her home in the 11500 block of 133rd Avenue Northeast in Grass Lawn with a male friend when her ex-boyfriend arrived at the house, “adamant that he wanted to get in and talk to or fight the other male.” Bove said the ex-boyfriend threatened the man inside the house, saying he would damage the man’s truck. At some point, the ex-boyfriend left the property, returning a few minutes later and began yelling at the man inside that he wanted to fight. The man in the house at some point took a gun out and told the other man to leave and that he would use the gun to defend himself if he was attacked.
