Auto theft arrest on Alki

On May 16th, at approximately 5:30 p.m., Southwest Precinct officers were at 58th Avenue Southwest and Alki Avenue Southwest when they observed a stolen vehicle occupied by three suspects. When the officers approached (in heavy traffic) to attempt to arrest them, the suspects fled on foot. Following several foot pursuits and yard-to-yard searches, two of the three suspects were located and arrested.   The Alki area was very crowded, choked with vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Officers reached the scene quickly without any collisions, conducted several foot pursuits, and took two suspects into custody without injury to officers or suspects. The two suspects, one adult male and one juvenile male, were booked into the King County Jail and Youth Services Center for Investigation of Auto Theft.
