Woman chased into laundry room by inebriated man

A Ballard woman was chased by a man into her outside laundry room on NW 58th St at 7:30pm last night, just across from the Ballard Commons Park. Delia Wichrowski wrote about her experience in the My Ballard Group, saying she noticed the man had been watching her, so she hurried into the laundry room and managed to shut the door before he followed her in.

My fiancé witnessed him sprinting towards me and he turned around after I slammed the door. He chased him off and we called authorities…He is a thin white male, around 6 foot, shaved head, and multiple tattoos, including one that says “SOUTHERN” on his chest. He was obviously inebriated and aggressive. Steer clear of this guy.

Wichrowski tells My Ballard that she’s never seen him before at the park. “I walk through there multiple times a day and he’s not one of the regulars.” She said she shared her story to remind people to be aware of their surroundings – even in broad daylight.

When police responded at 11:30pm, she told them not to bother with a sweep because he was likely long gone by then. If you have any information about incident or the man, contact Seattle Police at 206-625-5011.

Don’t be such a fearmongering NIMBY. You obviously just hate Seattle and are “not one of us.” Elenchos tells us Ballard is perfectly safe. You have nothing to fear from her pets. The creep who chased you is “just as good as you,” so stop criminalizing homelessness.

NIMLR – not in my laundry room! Seriously though, we can’t immediately assume this guy is a homeless junkie He could very well be from out of town and staying with associates. But clearly, he’s not a decent individual.

Maybe this fine fellow, apparently new to our neighborhood, will show up for the movie tonight. Welcome him. If he doesn’t know about St. Luke’s feeding program, invite him for breakfast, and maybe even a stay on their grounds to bed down for the night.

Maybe QTip can give him some leads for recreational products of his choice. Looks like he already is scoping out women. Gotta love the neighborhood, eh elenchos?

Also live next to Ballard Commons and I would fully support allowing a developer to take it over and build an apartment complex. If the city can’t afford to maintain the park and ensure some degree of safety it needs to be shut down.

Even Elenchos and homeless advocates have to be tired of the assaults on the homeless in the park and the sorry state of affairs of the HoneyBucket(s) and other facilities. Not to mention 4 deaths (primarily ODs) just this year!

Yeah, good luck with that idea. Hey, come to the park tonight and ask the crowd enjoying a movie in Ballard Commons if they’d like to see their park destroyed. Ask them if they think their park is dangerous.

This idea that you can address overdose deaths by sending in the cops to sweep people out of your sight is exactly why Seattle soundly rejects the proposals of these anti-homeless nimbys. Cleaning up the vista of the loudest nimbys doesn’t solve anything. Sweeping them into the shadows doesn’t protect them from violence; it’s the source of the violence.

Evidence-based approaches to drug addition have found that things like decriminalization and safe injection sites reduce deaths. The evidence shows that we dried the “just say no” drug war and it was a failure. Hence new strategies.

But don’t listen to me. Come by tonight and ask everyone there if they’d like to see their park closed.

Oh, YEAH! That’s right. Your great victory.

So Amazon is about to kick in ANOTHER half million dollars for this cause? Well more power to you. Any time you’ve got a bankroll that size, then the wind’s at your back.

I was referring to all the other times, when you don’t have a bunch of corporations using you as pawns to save themselves money. Seattle has rejected SS and the nimbys all those times.

Have you asked the Koch brothers for money? Rupert Murdoch? Trumpy? Somewhere out there is your sugar daddy.

I gotta admit, I don’t think there are enough deadly ODs in that park at this point. I care about the safety of that woman who had to flee into her laundry room, not some idiot addict who cares less about his own health than the city council does.

Careful Narcan Man. That kind of talk will get you lots of downvotes. Don’t you know, we’re not allowed to speak poorly of criminals, troublemakers, or junkies? They are our most deserving, most vulnerable, most misunderstood segment of society! They just needed a few more hugs growing up! They were just getting their lives back together. They’re just misunderstood!
No seriously, the illogic of the SJW’s is unbelievable.

elenchos

Things like burglary and rape are serious crimes, and they are real problems that require a real response.

What you do is panic, and spread lies and exaggerations. Your hysteria doesn’t solve anything. Your frothing outrage doesn’t help any crime victims, and it doesn’t prevent any crimes. It’s just rhetoric meant to provoke chaos and violence.

That’s why the city ignores you guys. That’s why the voters ignore you. You could have a lot of influence if you’d stick to facts and use your reason.

Ask the woman who was raped in the Carter volkswagen bathroom by a homeless person how she feels. What about the person nearly raped at golden gardens by a homeless person. Your vision of reality is quite skewed elenchos. I recommend you get medication for that asap.

A citizens action group aka vigilanteism might be the only solution since the City Council refuses to enforce existing laws and vilifies police for protecting themselves. The council are actually trying to change laws to give more rights to transient criminals (Google the ACLU lawsuit that has the support of the city council).

What would a vigilante group look like BAM?

Why would you claim that? I said no such thing.

This is what I keep saying about having a grip on reality. If all you ever do is exaggerate, nobody will take you seriously. Crowds will gather at Ballard Commons, or at the Sunday Market, because none of them are listening to you. They think you’re a joke.

Start telling it the truth and people will stop laughing at you.

That is the biggest bullshit story. Some mentally ill guy says something…doesn’t lunge, doesn’t make any attempt to act on the threat. Just sitting there talking insane shit. And it makes the news…err, I mean it makes Dori Monson. And then people aligned with Lever and Preston and Safe Seattle and such go batshit and fan the flames as if CIVILIZATION ITSELF IS THREATENED!

Let me tell you something. There are 99 reasons to get rid of O’Brien and other council members and this kook on Market ain’t one. Stick with the Jewish cemetery or the property crime. Stoking dystopian fear about child killers on Market may feel like you’re changing hearts and minds, but all you’re doing is sounding desperate. You want to beat MOB? You just need to be MOB Lite, not some proto-Trumper dog whistling more tunes than a steamboat calliope. Trust me.

I think elenchos is homeless and wants the free heroin that the city is handing out at the new city tiny home lot in South lake union. In case you didnt know, heroin and alcohol will be allowed. Elenchos I’m sure you will be first in line.

elenchos
Member
elenchos

Yeah, whatever buddy. Clearly you’ve gone on a bender here. Somebody is very, very triggered this fine day.

If you want to believe that about me, it doesn’t change the fact that crowds will gather in Ballard Commons Park and enjoy the movies, not suffering in a cesspool, or terrified by needles, or by any violence. Parks workers diligently search for these needles you guys rant about all day, and has barely found a handful of them over a period of months. Loose, used needles suck; everyone hates them. But there’s hardly any to speak of.

You can call me names and fume at me, but it’s a fact that the Ballard Sunday Market is packed, and nobody thinks it’s an urban jungle and nobody thinks it smells like human feces. Maybe I am homeless and a junkie and on George Soros’s payroll. But those facts are true regardless.

Mitch
Guest
Mitch

One of the reasons that City employees have reported so few needles is that junkies reuse and share them over and over again, which is also largely responsible for the epidemic of the very contagious and often fatal Hepatitis C infections among that population. From the Centers for Disease Control:

“The Hepatitis C virus is very infectious and can easily spread when a person comes into contact with surfaces, equipment, or objects that are contaminated with infected blood, even in amounts too small to see. The virus can survive on dry surfaces and equipment
for up to 6 weeks.”

Enjoy the movie, folks.

Did you go? I was there. Full house, it looked like they were having a fine time. No drama.

It’s amusing to contrast the unremarkable image of a lot of people at an outdoor movie with the outpouring of hysteria and anger it triggered in the MyBallard comments.

There will be several more movies at Commons. You all should stock up on your blood pressure meds, so you don’t have a stroke in the run up to Ferris Bueller.

It’s going to be OK. Don’t give in to the fear.

Actually, I went by this morning. Carts with bikes at the port-a-potty gone. Both tents still there; dirty mattress gone. Q-Tip holding court and his vehicle(s) where they usually are. So, I guess there is no parking enforcement, or rule against continuous street camping in a van at the same spot for weeks/months.

elenchos
Member
elenchos

You’re changing the subject. Can’t you man up and admit the movie showing in Commons Park was a success? There were none of the problems you guys predicted. Honest taxpaying citizens went out and enjoyed their public park just as they have a right to, because the camping in the park is not ruining it.

We have a homelessness emergency and a lot of people need help. But our parks are not cesspools, not overrun with criminals.

I think these concerns are real. I didn’t grow up in the white suburbs. It’s important that we know what’s going on to keep ourselves safe. Not long ago a neighbor was punched walking up her driveway. Stuff is happening. It would be really helpful if this space was used for information (such as this comment) instead of using it for the somewhat remarkable personal feuds going on between commenters.

It’s not helpful.
