On 03-01-2022 at 1422 hours, officers responded to a male attempting to break into a home on Whitman Av N near N. 109 St. The resident was notified that someone had entered the yard via their Ring camera. Shortly after, the male suspect was observed looking into the home through the kitchen windows. The female resident asked the male to leave the property several times, but the male ignored her. The suspect picked up a hammer that was outside and began tapping his hand with it in a menacing manner. The female resident was very frightened of the suspect and worried that he would break the front window to get inside. She called 911 for assistance. When the suspect saw that she was calling the police he left the yard. The suspect crossed the street and started looking into another residence. The resident at the second home told the suspect to leave. The suspect picked up a very large rock and demanded to be let in. At that time officers arrived on scene. The suspect was uncooperative with officers. When officers took him into custody, he was stiffening his arms to resist being placed into handcuffs. Officers placed him into handcuffs, but due to his uncooperative behavior it was decided that AMR would transport the suspect to King County Jail. Once AMR arrived officers picked up the suspect from the ground to place him on the gurney. As officers were strapping the suspect to the gurney with the safety restraints, the suspect kicked out his leg and knocked an officer to the ground. The officer’s head struck an unknown object. The officer was taken to Northwest Hospital for medical evaluation. Lt screened this incident.
