   Nov. 16: A 26-year-old Monroe woman driving a 1989 Ford Mustang eastbound on SR-522 was tailgated by a suspect in a 1991 Honda Civic. The woman tapped her brakes to tell the tailgater to back off, but was followed when she exited into Woodinville. Stopped at the intersection of NE 177th Pl. and 131st Ave. NE, the woman heard something hitting the back of her car and the other driver's arm waving as if things were being thrown. When the traffic signal turned green, both parties went their separate ways. Later, the woman found pennies near her trunk.
