Borgioli knew witnesses had seen a U-Haul truck in the neighborhood when the Jan. 2 robberies occurred, and she knew the truck didn’t have any business in her neighborhood, so she used her vehicle to block the truck from leaving.
“Initially, I wasn’t going to confront anybody,” the mother of three said. “I was just going to park my car and call the police. But, the woman who was in the driver’s seat stuck her head out the window and started conversing with me.”
Snoqualmie Police Capt. Nick Almquist said the woman’s male accomplice, who had pried open the sliding glass door in the back of the home, came around to the front of the house to see what all the commotion was about.
The man was about 10 feet away from Borgioli when he pulled out a Ruger .40-caliber handgun, pointed it and told her to, “Get out of here,” according to Almquist.
SPD Chief Steve McCulley said Borgioli somehow had the wherewithal to dial 911 and honk her horn to alert other neighbors while she sped off to get away.
