Police E-Alert: Incident and Arrest at Newcastle Elementary School
Posted on 10/02/2017

On Sept. 28 and Sept. 29, the Newcastle Police Department had two incidents involving a violation of a protection order at Newcastle Elementary School. Both incidents involved specific family members and were not generalized incidents toward the school. A person is in custody as of Sept. 29. We do not believe this incident will be an ongoing problem and there is no danger to the students or staff of Newcastle Elementary related to this incident.

We understand that several parents recorded the arrest of this person by officers on Sept. 29. If you have video of this incident, we encourage you to contact Detective Chris Leyba at (206) 850-7446 and reference case c17048233. Thank you.
