Domestic Violence Threats investigation

On July 26th at approximately 6:02 p.m. officers responded to a 911 report of a domestic violence threats incident involving a male suspect and a female victim in the 6300 block of 22nd Avenue SW.  The 27-year-old male suspect fled the residence in a white 1993 Jeep Cherokee prior to the officers’ arrival on scene. 

Officers conducting an area search for the suspect spotted the suspect’s vehicle in the parking lot of a convenience store in the 4300 block of SW Admiral Way.  The Jeep was occupied by a small child who was sitting in the front passenger seat.  Officers then saw the suspect exiting the store but were unable to stop him before he could get into the Jeep.  Officers ordered the suspect to stop the vehicle and show his hands however, the suspect put the vehicle in gear and accelerated toward one of the officers, requiring the officer to jump out of the way to avoid being struck.  The suspect drove off northbound on 44th Avenue SW followed by the officers. 

The officers attempted to stop the suspect however, the suspect refused to stop.  Due to the reckless nature of the suspect’s driving and the presence of the child in the vehicle without a proper restraint device, officers discontinued their effort to stop the suspect.  A short time later a citizen called 911 reporting a suspicious white Jeep in the alley to the west of the 3600 block of 44th Avenue SW.  Officers responded to the scene and subsequently impounded the suspect’s vehicle. 

The suspect, who is known to officers, remains at large.  He is a 27-year-old white male, 5’10”, 250 lbs., with long hair in a pony tail and last seen wearing a white tank top. 

The suspect has his 18-month-old son with him.  There have been no threats made against the child nor is it believed that the child is in any danger.  The 31-year-old female victim was not injured during the course of this incident. 

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the suspect or the child is asked to call 911 or Seattle Police immediately and refer to this incident.
