Warrant Suspect Apprehended in Woods After Foot Pursuit and Search

You can run, but you can’t hide.

At approximately 12:07 a.m. Gang Unit detectives were on patrol in South Seattle when they spotted a known warrant suspect who was a passenger in a Volvo station wagon.  The suspect, a 20-year-old male, was known by detectives to have multiple active warrants for his arrest.  Just south of the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South (MLK) and South Ryan Way detectives initiated a traffic stop.  As soon as the Volvo came to a stop the suspect exited the vehicle and took off running.  The suspect ran westbound across all lanes of I-5 and attempted to evade capture by running into the wooded area on the west side of I-5.

Patrol officers and Gang detectives chased after the suspect.  With the assistance of Seattle Police canine units, Tukwila Police and Guardian One, officers located and arrested the suspect in the woods beside a railroad yard south of Boeing Access Road on the west side of I-5.

Gang Unit detectives are currently interviewing the suspect.  Upon completion of the interview the suspect will be booked into the King County Jail on his outstanding warrants.
