Police arrested a 36-year-old man Wednesday after he allegedly went on a lengthy crime spree that included at least four hit-and-runs and a failed carjacking.
It’s unclear exactly what happened and when, police say, but it appears the man began his rampage at a nursing home in West Seattle, where he belligerently started knocking items off a counter and threw a walker at an employee. He then drove off recklessly on the sidewalk, a 911 caller told police, crashing into another vehicle or person in the process and then driving off.
He was involved in three more hit-and-runs in various neighborhoods in the city, police say. The suspect eventually ditched his vehicle and attempted to car-jack someone at knife point, but failed.
Officers finally arrested him Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Walden Street. Police say the damage is still being tallied.
