Police: Suspect runs across I-5 in attempt to escape capture
SEATTLE -- A 20-year-old with multiple warrants out for his arrest ran across I-5 early Thursday in an attempt to avoid arrest, according to the Seattle Police Department.
According to police, Gang Unit detectives spotted the suspect in the passenger seat of a Volvo station wagon shortly after midnight and pulled the car over near the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Ryan Way.
As soon as the Volvo stopped, the suspect got out and ran off, cutting westbound across the freeway and entering a nearby wooded area, according to police.
The detectives, as well as SPD officers, K-9 units, Tukwila Police officers and Guardian One gave chase, eventually locating the suspect in the woods near a railroad yard south of the Boeing Access Road.
The suspect was booked into King County Jail for his outstanding warrants.
