On 09-07-2021 at 1359 hours, officer was on scene to investigate a cold property damage call. After speaking to the complainant and returning to his vehicle, a citizen approached and reported a male nearby, damaging vehicles. The officer observed that the suspect appeared to match the earlier description of the property damage suspect. The officer immediately called for an additional officer and attempted to talk to the suspect, who refused to stop and continued walking away, turning down a nearby alley. The officer followed on foot at a safe distance of about 30-40 feet. When the officer turned down the alley to see where the suspect had gone, he found the suspect standing about 10 feet away, waiting for him and facing him. The suspect then told the officer that he would “curb stomp” him. The officer asked if that was intended as a threat and the suspect said that it was before throwing a garbage can towards the officer and then advancing on him. The officer was unable to safely maintain distance and was forced to go hands on with the suspect, who fought with the officer before using his hands to gouge at the officer’s eyes and face. The officer was able to subdue the suspect until additional units arrived and together, they were able to get the suspect into custody, who continued to fight against arrest and restraints until AMR arrived to place him on a gurney for transport. The suspect was eventually booked into King County Jail for felony assault on an officer. The officer sustained minor injuries and was treated at Harborview and released.
