STANWOOD, Wash. – A
man suspected of stealing a semi-truck and assaulting a Sheriff’s deputy has
been apprehended after an hour-long manhunt.
The incident began around 12:30 p.m. when a call came in that
the suspect allegedly stole a 10-wheel semi-truck from the 2600 block of Norman
Rd. A Sheriff’s deputy located the vehicle and suspect, who was out of
the truck, a short time later. When the deputy attempted to question the
suspect, the suspect assaulted the deputy and fled the area on foot. With
the assistance of several units, including K9, the suspect was located at
Church Ck Gulch and Jensen Rd and taken into custody around 2 p.m.
The deputy sustained what are believed to be minor injuries.
This incident is still under investigation and further details
will be released when available.
