Police chase down suspect


A domestic violence situation in Copalis Beach earlier this morning ended with a foot pursuit across State Street from the Heron Street AM/PM in Aberdeen. The suspect, a 34-year-old man from the Copalis Beach area, was arrested at about 9:45 a.m.

He has been booked in the Grays Harbor County Jail on charges of domestic violence assault and resisting arrest.

Deputy Mike Osgood of the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office observed the suspect’s vehicle stopped at the AM/PM parking lot in Aberdeen after hearing about the domestic violence incident. When Osgood attempted to apprehend the suspect, there was a physical confrontation and the suspect fled on foot, according to Chief Criminal Deputy Dave Pimentel of the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office.

Police units from Aberdeen, Hoquiam and the State Patrol also assisted the Sheriff’s Office in the chase. The suspect climbed over a fence into a secured compound where he was apprehended, Pimentel said.

There were no injuries.
