Suspect Arrested for Stalking and Harassment

Seattle Police responded just after 10:00 p.m. Monday night after a man threatened to harm himself at a Queen Anne neighborhood residence. Officers spoke with the 26-year-old man who confirmed he was upset and said he would be resolving the issue himself with a 26-year-old female resident of the home.  

Officers learned the man left his apartment armed with a rifle. Police asked multiple times about the location of the rifle but were given false information by the suspect. Officers then found a car associated with the man and impounded it for further processing due to not locating the rifle.  

The male suspect was placed under arrest for false reporting. While in custody, it was discovered a friend of the suspect had retrieved the rifle from a nearby alley. Police then recovered the rifle.  

When officers spoke with the woman, she provided information about multiple incidents with the suspect which caused her to fear for her safety.  

Police arrested the suspect for the additional crimes of stalking, harassment, and obstruction. He was booked into the King County Jail.  

SPD Domestic Violence Detectives will be leading the investigation.
