Handgun pulled at Kenmore Lanes

After an argument and fight, a man pulled a handgun on a group of four friends at Kenmore Lanes on Feb. 6.

A 30-year-old Bellevue woman is in custody after deputies said a man she was associated with pulled a handgun on four friends at Kenmore Lanes on Feb. 6.

According to a report provided by the King County Sheriff’s Office, a group of three friends was outside Kenmore Lanes, waiting while the fourth member of their party was inside.

While they were waiting, a dark colored Chevrolet Caprice pulled into a handicapped spot adjacent to one of the group members cars.

The 30-year-old woman came out of Kenmore Lanes to get in the Caprice, and in doing so, swung it’s passenger door into one of the group’s car doors, the report said.

One member of the group confronted the woman, telling her to “be careful,” deputies said.

The two women began to argue, and one member of the group tried to take a picture of the Caprice.

Deputies said the Bellevue woman kicked the phone out of her hand and began pulling her hair.

At this point, deputies said the man driving the Caprice pulled a handgun out of his car and pointed it at the group and making threats.

The group of friends backed off, and the male suspect got in the car and drove away, leaving the Bellevue woman at Kenmore Lanes, the report said.

The woman was located nearby when deputies arrived, and was arrested for fourth-degree assault.

Deputies are still looking for the man on second-degree assault charges.
