Bremerton man in jail again

Bremerton resident Nick In Young Park, 37, of the 5500 block of NW English Hill Court, has been charged in Kitsap County District Court with a felony violation of a court order.

Due to his lengthy criminal record, Park was originally held on $2 million bail at the Kitsap County Jail following his most recent arrest May 3 in Silverdale.

According to court documents, Park has eight felony convictions and four gross misdemeanor convictions. The felonies include stalking, identity theft, two counts of forgery, two counts of theft in the second degree, unlawful issuance of bank checks and possession of stolen property. The gross misdemeanors include two domestic violence court order violations, theft in the third degree and making false or misleading statements.

Park was recently jailed on March 12 and April 4 for probation violations. Court documents note that Park is currently being investigated in several cases involving harassment, stalking/cyberstalking and multiple no contact order violations.

“Park’s victims are extremely terrified and fear for their safety,” a police report states. “Several of his victims have obtained or are in the process of obtaining anti-harassment orders against him. One  victims has informed me that in addition to the order she got against Park, she plans to change her name because she fears him so much.”

In the latest case, a female victim contacted police April 28 to report harassment from Park via Facebook and text messages.

“Park threatened to call her work and tell them that she would be better suited as a “sumo wrestler” than a clerk,” a police report states. “In the messages, he constantly mocks her weight and belittles her. Park also made vague threats to come to her work and cause problems.”

The woman told Park to stop, but she contacted police on May 1 to report more harassment. She told police that she was afraid to go to work because of the possibility that Park would show up there. She also said she feared for her own physical safety.
