On 9-27-2020 at 0025 hours, officers responded to a trespass call that had been holding for a while, but the suspect was still on scene and had now made it into an apartment. Officers arrived and contacted the suspect who was uncooperative. The suspect was handcuffed and escorted out of the building. It was determined that the best course of action was to send the suspect to the hospital. The suspect did not agree and demanded he go to jail. When told by the officer he was going for a mental health evaluation, the suspect, from a close distance, spat in the officer’s face while still demanding to go to jail. It was later found that the suspect had property on his person that belonged to the actual tenant of the apartment the suspect was found inside. The suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Assault on Officer as well as Investigation of Burglary.
