Police: Man threatens woman's car, dog and couch over broken plans
SEATTLE -- A man with an apparent anger problem, as well as a cellphone with spotty auto-correct, stabbed a woman's house and threatened her dog when car problems prevented her from keeping plans with him, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to the police report for the incident, the victim recently met the suspect through a friend, though she specifically told officers they weren't dating.
The two had agreed to meet last Sunday night, but the victim's car broke down while she was on the way. While she was waiting for a friend to pick her up, the suspect started sending her text messages, according to the report.
According to the report, those messages read, in part: "I swear to god if your [expletive] with me I will steal your car and melt it down to [expletive], then busy in your house and [expletive] on your [expletive] couch, paybacks a [expletive] keep playing [your dog] home alone."
The victim, who felt the above message was partially a threat to her dog, returned to her Ballard home early Monday morning to find her door unlocked and one of her large kitchen knives stuck into the outside of the house.
Police are investigating the incident as possible stalking and burglary.
