If you saw a large police response outside of Huckleberry Square Restaurant on Ambaum Blvd. SW in Burien on Thursday morning, Jan. 25, 2024, here’s what Sgt. Eric White of the King County Sheriff’s Office told us:
- At 9:51 a.m., Burien Police Officers responded to do a welfare check on an elderly male who was not feeling well. This response only had two cars respond for a welfare check.
- Then at 10:33 a.m., a second call was received about a female in a mental health crisis but in the middle of the roadway. This incident took multiple cars to respond in order to de-escalate the female, block traffic and get her into an ambulance and off to a local area hospital where she could receive mental health services.
This is all the information police released.
