Renton police used K-9 tracking to arrest someone for allegedly assaulting another resident with a knife Tuesday night, Oct. 8 at the Highlands Albertsons on Northeast Sunset Boulevard.
According to a post from Renton Police Department, police were responding to a threat with a knife call. Earlier that evening police tweeted it was an attempted robbery with a knife.
The initial K-9 track didn’t find the suspect, but continued tracking from both K-9 Zev and King County Sheriff’s Office helicopter, as well as suspect information from residents on social media, helped the officer arrest the person without incident.
On Twitter, Renton police thanked the officer and his K-9.
