Five arrested in Highlands near Kiwanis Park after short manhunt

Five individuals were apprehended Thursday afternoon in the Highlands after a short chase and manhunt near Hazen High School and Kiwanis Park.

Four suspects were apprehended at about 3:15 p.m. on Redmond Avenue Northeast, then shortly after the fifth suspect was found by a K9 unit on Northeast Eighth Court.

The incident started when a man spotted his friend's stolen vehicle at a gas station at Sunset Boulevard and Duvall Avenue Northeast and called 911, according to Terri Vickers, a spokeswoman for the Renton Police Department.

The stolen car left the gas station and responding officers pursued it for about one minute on Duvall to Northeast 10th Street, before terminating the pursuit because of weather and traffic, according to Vickers.

The vehicle crashed into a fence on Northeast Ninth Court at 3:07 p.m.

A police perimeter was set up in the area, creating a large police presence and the investigation was continued into the afternoon.
