Officer assaulted by suspect in North Seattle-suspect being sought

On 2/10/10, at approximately 12:45 a.m., an officer attempted to contact the suspect on a traffic violation in the area of 90th and Aurora Av N. The suspect, described as a white male in his 20’s, refused to yield to the officers lights and sirens.

A very brief pursuit ensued and was quickly terminated.  Moments later, the suspect crashed into a house in the area. There were people inside the home but they were not injured. The suspect got out of his vehicle and attempted to run away from the scene on foot. The officer chased the suspect at which point the suspect assaulted the officer and attempted to disarm her.

The officer continued to give chase and at some point lost sight of the suspect. The officer was treated on scene by Seattle Fire and transported to an area hospital with unknown injuries. 

As of 2:30 a.m., the suspect was still outstanding.
