Possible prank: At 7:36 p.m. in the 8600 block of Northeast 139th Street, someone came in behind a home camera pointed at the front door and adjusted it. The homeowner noticed this while in Seattle and called to alert police of the strange circumstance. The house was secure with no signs of forced or attempted entry.

After-hours construction: At 6:12 p.m. at Northeast 128th Street and 94th Avenue Northeast, someone reported construction being done after hours. They appeared to be paving the driveway.

Burglary: At 9:18 p.m. in the 12200 block of 131st Place Northeast, a person reported that an unknown male attempted to gain access to their apartment through a ground-floor window. The screen was removed and the suspect scared off by the resident and his firearm. No entry was made.

Escort: At 9:45 p.m. in the 10500 block of Northup Way, a man called to advise police that an escort he had hired several times in the past had failed to show up for their last date after he had pre-paid her $1,900.
