Axe wielding shoplifting suspect detained
At 3:51PM, Tukwila officers responded to the 100 blk Andover Park E for the report of a shoplifting suspect that had wielded an axe at Loss Prevention officers then fled on foot.
Officers located the male nearby who refused to stop and proceeded to run from officers. The suspect went around a corner then emerged and charged at the officer. At this time a taser was deployed and the suspect was detained. He was positively identified by Loss Prevention as being the same suspect that had displayed the axe during the shoplifting incident.

Thanks for another job well-done by Tukwila PD
Nice that Tukwila officers showed the skill to use non letha force even against an axe wielding maniac. Bravo!
