Snoqualmie/North Bend police and a regional detective need help from the public in solving a stabbing and sexual assault that happened late Sunday in North Bend. Shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday, March 9, police responded to a 911 call from a business on the 400 block of Mount Si Boulevard in North Bend. Officers found a woman who had been stabbed once in the chest, duct taped at her feet and wrists, and sexually assaulted. She was the last employee in the business and was exiting the back door when an unknown Hispanic man forced her back into the premises. She was transported to Overlake Hospital and is in stable condition. A detective with the Major Crimes Task Force, a regional partnership of which Snoqualmie is a member, is investigating. Anyone with a tip should report it to police by calling (425) 888-3333. Callers can remain anonymous.
The Carnation beat Deputy is center of Lower Valley city’s new law enforcement contract BY CAROL LADWIG Staff Reporter
Carnation’s new police officer is back. Scott Allen, who got his first job in law enforcement 17 years ago with Carnation’s police department, is once again patrolling the city, this time as both a King County Sheriff ’s Deputy and Carnation’s dedicated full-time cop. “For the last two years or so, I’ve been wanting to get back to patrol,” Allen said, “I’ve been wanting to get back out here to familiar territory, because I know all the people who work out here.” Allen had spent most of his career after joining King County in the Snoqualmie Valley, either as a detective or shared patrol, but had spent the past seven years as a detective in Seattle. When he heard about the unexpected opening in Carnation—the city learned in October that Duvall was ending its police contract, effective Jan. 1—he jumped for it. SEE COPS, 8
