Valentine's Day manhunt in Lake Forest Park

Thursday, February 24, 2011

A Lake Forest Park woman called 911 on Valentine's Day because the man she had just started to date was kicking in her door and threatening to kill her.

She told police that his cell phone and some belongings, including a bag of guns, were in her apartment which is located in the 2600 block of NE 195th.

He kicked down her apartment door and started grabbing his things. As the police arrived at the front of the building, he jumped off the rear balcony and ran.

LFP Police called in the K9 units and Lynnwood and Edmonds Police. A King County Sheriff's Office K9 unit tracked the man to brush near Ballinger Way and 25th. He was apprehended at the apartment complex next to the east end of the Ballinger Estates.

The K9 units were then used to drag the area for evidence. They found a rifle behind the apartment complex on NE 195th.

Hmmm, I was there and didn't see a single King County unit anywhere, they were quite busy at another unrelated incident. It was LFP, Bothell and an Edmonds K-9. LFP officers chased and apprehended the suspect before any K-9 units were on scene and the Edmonds K-9 unit did an evidence track which did locate some useful items.

If you were there, I defer to your viewpoint. My information came from the police report. Please contact me privately at
