LETTER: Burien Good Samaritan Gets Robbed After Helping Scooter Owner
Last night (Sunday, Oct. 28) a red scooter covered in duct tape broke down in from of my neighbor’s house on 112th Street and 18th in Burien (map below).
My neighbor, David, is the nicest person I have ever met. The kind of neighbor that mows your lawn while mowing his if he notices yours is a little long. He even voluntarily limbed some of his trees because he noticed they were blocking our view. He is constantly helping people.
When David noticed the scooter owner trying to get his scooter running, he offered assistance. And they brought the scooter in David’s garage. David helped him get it going again. The driver then said he was low on gas and David, being the good Samaritan he is, went to get him some.
When he returned the scooter was gone, and two of his computers! He filed a police report.
Later that night, someone returned and tried to jimmy the locks. The dogs started barking and the intruder fled. Fairly certain it was the same man.
The driver was a white man about 5’ 9” tall, sandy blond hair, about 150 pounds. He had bad teeth and a big sore on the back of his neck. Please get the word out about this suspicious vehicle and person. If anyone sees a scooter and suspect matching this description please have them call 911. Case 12-251953. Under David Chacon.
This really could not have happened to a nicer person and it makes me sick to my stomach.
