Charges filed by the KCPAO: Monday, Nov. 28

The overwhelming majority of criminal cases filed daily by the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office don’t receive public attention.

That’s not the fault of the public or news reporters — it’s understandable with the volume of felony cases we file each day.

The KCPAO is sharing the number of adult cases filed each day and additional details about a handful of specific cases to highlight the kinds of cases we handle. Details below are from the public charging documents.

NOTE: There were no filings on Nov. 24 or 25 (Thanksgiving and the day after). Nov. 26 and 27 were weekend days. That’s why there’s a jump in filing dates from Nov. 23 to Nov. 28.

Robbery In The First Degree

The defendant stole a can of soda and flipped off the employees as he walked out of a South Seattle store, telling them he was not going to pay. As an employee followed the defendant out the door, the defendant aimed a loaded gun at the employee at point blank range. As the defendant was leaving on a bicycle, he fired the gun in the direction of the employee and store. Not only is the incident caught on surveillance, when interviewed by officers, the defendant admitted that he was the one seen on surveillance from the incident, that he only took a soda, and that the gun he used was the same gun found on his person on November 9, 2022, when he was arrested by Washington State Patrol on a separate investigation. King County prosecutors believe he is likely to commit another violent offense if released and asked a judge to hold him on $200,000 bail. The separate State Patrol investigation has not yet been sent to King County prosecutors for a charging decision, and the investigation may still be ongoing.

Robbery In The First Degree

On Nov. 22, the defendant entered a US Bank location in Kent demanding currency and threatened the clerk saying he would shoot up the bank if he did not receive money. When the clerk gave the defendant some cash from the till, the defendant left the scene. Within minutes, law enforcement arrested the defendant who had proceeds of the robbery on his person and was quickly identified by bank employees. Surveillance footage from the bank clearly show the defendant’s face and his retrieval of money during the robbery. King County prosecutors argued that the defendant should be held on $300,000 bail. It should be noted that the defendant was arrested on 10/29/22 in Chicago, Illinois for a similar robbery incident at a CITI Bank which the FBI is currently investigating the defendant. The defendant’s criminal history includes a 2014 First Degree Robbery, a 2010 Felony Harassment, a 2004 Robbery in the Second Degree as well as four additional felonies and nine misdemeanors.

Animal Cruelty in the First Degree — Domestic Violence

In the early morning hours of Nov. 23, the defendant killed a pet cat named Stripes belonging to her 64-year-old mother. The mother was inside her own North Seattle trailer home when she awoke to the sounds of Stipes crying out while the defendant repeatedly stabbed the cat with a knife. The level of violence in this case demonstrates the substantial likelihood that the defendant will commit a new offense while this case is pending, such as against another animal, or against her mother. King County prosecutors argued for a no-contact order prohibiting the defendant’s contact with her mother and also asked for an order prohibiting the defendant from possessing any animals. King County prosecutors argued that she should be held on $25,000 bail. The first appearance judge set bail at $20,000. Because a court rule, prosecutors could not re-argue bail, so we asked that the $20,000 amount be maintained with the case filing.

These case summaries, which were posted Dec. 6, 2022, are not expected to be updated. To see additional details in each case, go to the KC-Script Portal.
