Chehalis Police: Guns Pointed at Two People After Interrupted Vehicle Prowls


The Chehalis Police Department is investigating two separate incidents on Southwest William Avenue early Monday morning where an unidentified man allegedly pointed a gun at someone who interrupted an attempted vehicle prowl.

The first incident occurred in the 600 block of Southwest William Avenue at approximately 2:25 a.m. The victim had reportedly interrupted six or seven subjects attempting a vehicle prowl when one of the subjects, described as a 5-foot-10 dark-skinned man possibly around 18 years of age, pulled out a gun and pointed it at the victim.

The man reportedly had the victim empty his pockets before he and his companions left the scene, according to the Chehalis Police Department.

The second incident occurred in the 500 block of Southwest William Avenue just after 4:30 a.m. and involved three suspects, who were described as “two white skinny males” and one 6-foot-1 dark-skinned, heavy-set man, according to the Chehalis Police Department. One of the suspects reportedly pointed a firearm at a victim who interrupted a vehicle prowl then fled the scene.

No injuries were reported in either incident.

The Chehalis Police Department has not made any connections between the two incidents as of Monday afternoon, but the cases are still under active investigation.  Anyone with information related to either incident is asked to contact the Chehalis Police Department at 360-740-1105.
