MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — A man wanted for a November assault in Everett led police on a pursuit in a stolen car Tuesday in Mountlake Terrace, according to police reports.
Last month a security guard confronted a man at an Evergreen Way motel for going in and out of a room where he wasn’t registered, according to Everett police reports. Later he returned and crawled through a window. The guard confronted him again. The man allegedly pulled out a gun, aimed at the guard’s head and threatened to shoot — or else to get a gang to shoot him. He charged at the guard, who retreated to an office and locked the door.
Police identified a suspect, 33, but he remained at large.
Just after midnight Tuesday, a man heard his Honda Accord starting up outside a home on 48th Avenue W., said Cmdr. Doug Hansen, of the Mountlake Terrace police. Officers caught up to the car. The driver sped south, according to police reports filed in court. He bailed from the car at Firefighters Memorial Park and ran. An Edmonds police dog found him hiding in a back yard.
The man was arrested for investigation of motor vehicle theft, attempting to elude, second-degree assault and harassment.
