Police, sheriff’s deputies and the KCSD’s Guardian 1 Helicopter catch fugitive in Forest Villa neighborhood

Excitement in the Forest Villa neighborhood on Muckleshoot Hill Tuesday evening.

What was going down?

Turns out, between 7 and 8 p.m., the KCSD was looking for a man wanted on a $50,000 domestic violence assault felony warrant issued by a King County Superior Court Judge, and Auburn Police were helping out.

In end, law enforcement got their man.

“He didn’t show up to court, so they had a warrant for his arrest,” Ryan Abbott, public information officer for the King County Sheriff’s Department, explained Wednesday afternoon. “Detectives had the address and were doing surveillance on it. I am not sure if they had it from a tip or just from info he had provided during the DV case.

“Originally, he was hiding under a tarp next to a vehicle in a driveway, and (when) deputies moved in to arrest him, he ran into the house. However, deputies knew the people there … and (they) talked to the sister who was able to get her brother, the suspect, to surrender,” Abbott said.

“Our K-9 assisted in getting the guy along with the county’s helicopter,” said Auburn Police Cmdr. Mark Callier.
