Chased with a knife
Renton police were dispatched on Aug. 19 at approximately 11:56 p.m. to a physical domestic violence situation with a weapon at an apartment complex in the 500 block of Stevens Avenue Southwest.
The reporting party advised that a man in the family was running through the complex as his brother chased him with a knife. A report had been filed earlier in the day involving the same suspect for another physical domestic situation involving a different family member, according to the department. Police had established probable cause in the previous report, but the suspect was gone upon police arrival. The department advised the involved subjects to call 911 if the suspect returned to the apartment.
When officers arrived for the second scene, they contacted a man, the family member, who had retrieved the knife from the suspect who had returned and began a dispute.
Officers contacted the suspect who remained nearby and gave commands for him to get on the ground, according to the department. The suspect refused commands and started aggressively walking and approaching officers at a fast pace, ignoring additional commands to stop and get on the ground.
An officer deployed a taser on the suspect and the suspect was taken into custody without further incident. After medical clearance, police transported the suspect to the King County Jail and booked him on a felony charge of assault in the first degree.
