An hour-long manhunt by Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies has resulted in the arrest of a man suspected of stealing a semi-truck and assaulting a deputy.
The sheriff’s office said the incident began after a report that a man had stolen a 10-wheel semi-truck. A sheriff’s deputy later spotted the truck and the suspect standing nearby.
When the deputy attempted to question the suspect, according to the sheriff’s office, the suspect assaulted the deputy and fled on foot. He was later located following a search by deputies and K-9 patrols.
The deputy apparently suffered only minor injuries.
