Tukwila Feb 25 Weekly Crime Report: 200 Incidents and 5 Crime Stories. During the last week, Tukwila reported a total of 200 crime cases. The most common crime was Theft, with 59 cases, followed closely by Suspicious Situation with 56 cases, and Other crimes, accounting for 31 cases. Assault was the fourth most common crime, with 22 cases reported. Arrests and Vandalism both had 8 cases each, making them the fifth most common crimes. Trespassing and Argument-related crimes were also reported, with 6 and 5 cases respectively. The least common crimes were Robbery and Burglary, both with only 2 cases reported each. The data indicates a relatively high rate of theft and suspicious situations, which may point towards a need for increased surveillance and police presence in the place.
