Man who allegedly attempted to run ex-girlfriend over with car charged with assault, harassment

Suspect had a loaded Glock on him, police say.

Police have arrested a man suspected of attempting to run his ex-girlfriend over several times with his car.

On Aug. 7, the suspect, a 34-year-old Seattle man, was intoxicated at his ex-girlfriend’s apartment, before she left the location to go to a friend’s residence. The suspect followed the woman there and while inside, in the presence of her friend, he her if she did not immediately leave the apartment he would shoot her and anyone else in the residence, according to charging papers.

The victim, 30, told police that she feared the threat, because she knew the defendant would often carry a firearm. And her friend was too scared to shelter her friend in her home knowing this and having children in the home.

After the woman left the apartment, the victim called 911. That’s when the defendant allegedly drove his 2015 Nissan Sentra at the subject. She jumped out of the way. The man circled back and drove over the curb in another attempt to strike the woman, charging papers state.

Police were dispatched to the 5400 block of Lakemont Boulevard Southeast. Other officers stopped the suspect who was still nearby driving his car. On him he had a loaded Glock pistol and additional magazines. He appeared to be intoxicated, officers said.

The suspect also faced other criminal offenses. In 2015, the defendant pled guilty to driving under the influence, after three different 911 callers reported the suspect’s erratic driving. He ultimately rear ended another vehicle. In 2014 he pled guilty to unlawful discharge of a firearm and in 2012 completed a deferral on a disorderly conduct charge, after he tried to cash a forged check, according to court documents.

The suspect was charged with assault in the second degree and felony harassment. He will have a case setting hearing at 1 p.m. on Sept. 3, according to prosecutors. His bond was set at $250,000.
