Kingston woman

arrested for assault

KINGSTON — An 18-year-old Kingston woman was arrested by Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies March 11 after allegedly physically assaulting a man.

The victim, an 18-year-old Kingston resident, said he had been hit several times by the suspect in the parking lot of the Kingston Kountry Korners shopping center on Miller Bay Road shortly before 2 p.m. The suspect and a 19-year-old Kingston man had parked next to the victim in a red Ford Taurus. The woman got out and hit the victim several times in the face and then she and the 19-year-old man screamed obscenities at the victim.

The suspects later said they assaulted the victim because they heard the victim had made derogatory comments about a Kingston resident who was in a car accident on Hansville Road March 8. The victim believes that the suspects were retaliating because of his comments.

The 19-year-old suspect arrived later at the victim’s house and yelled profanities again and kicked over a trash can.

The victim said when he arrived home, he found his door had been egged and a dead bird was lying on the doorstep. The suspects told deputies they had no knowledge of that vandalism.

The 18-year-old woman was arrested on charges of fourth degree assault and bail was set at $5,000.

Suspect ‘forgets’

to purchase shoes

PORT ORCHARD — A 45-year-old Poulsbo woman was arrested on charges of theft and drug possession March 13 at a Port Orchard Wal-Mart.

Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived on the scene of the Wal-Mart on Bethel Road for a shoplifting in progress at approximately 6 p.m. Sunday.

They found the suspect in custody within the Wal-Mart offices. A Wal-Mart loss prevention agent said she observed the suspect put on a pair of shoes valued at $9.86 and wear them out of the store after paying for other items.

The suspect said she didn’t intend to steal the shoes but then changed her story and said it was “an impulsive act” to steal them. The loss prevention agent said she also found $500 cash on the suspect.

After a search of the suspect’s purse and further investigation, the suspect was arrested and booked into jail on charges of theft, possession of methamphetamine, possession of less than 40 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bail was set initially at $25,000.
