Other deputies in the area began searching for the car, which was found abandoned in a yard in the 900 block of 85th St E.
A deputy spotted the female driver running along the railroad tracks nearby. When she saw the deputy following her, she hopped a fence and ran back toward the road.
When a driver slowed down to avoid hitting her, the suspect reached into the 70-year-old man’s car and unlocked the door. She repeatedly tried to pull him out of the car and punched him multiple times.
When Pierce County deputies got to the car, the suspect was on the victim’s lap and was trying to drive away in the car. She tried to flee on foot once again and was taken into custody almost immediately.
Seattle police arrest man for attempted carjacking
Seattle police arrested a man Monday afternoon for an attempted carjacking.
It started after the man attempted to rob a woman of her purse and cell phone near the intersection of 5th Avenue and Terrace Street.
According to the Seattle Police report, officers contacted the 68-year-old female victim who reported a man asked her for a ride, and when she said no, the man sat in the driver’s seat of her car. The victim held the driver’s side door open, fearing the 40-year-old male suspect was going to drive off.
The suspect instead took the victim’s purse and cell phone and ran off on 8th Avenue. A witness chased the suspect and the suspect dropped the purse but ran the scene.
Officers took the man into custody without incident. He was later booked into King County Jail for robbery and his outstanding fugitive warrant.
