DV Assault, robbery arrest in Rainier Valley

On December 12th at approximately 11:45 pm, the suspect went to the home of his ex (near Rainier Ave. South/South Othello).  She has a court order against him.  The suspect pounded on the front door.  The mother of the victim opened the door and yelled at the suspect to leave.  As the victim went outside to protect her car (from possible damage from the suspect), the suspect grabbed her by the neck and attempted to force her into his car.  A South Precinct officer arrived right at that moment and the suspect attempted to flee in his car.  The suspect drove approximately 4 or 5 blocks, tossing items out of his car as he drove. Those items were later recovered.  He finally stopped and was taken into custody without incident.  The 45-year old suspect was later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Violation of a No-Contact Order and Investigation of Robbery (Domestic Violence).
