Domestic disturbance leads to high-speed chase and arrest

At 10:18 a.m. Wednesday, Bellevue police officers responded to a domestic disturbance involving a known wanted suspect.  During the 911 call, the female caller whispered an address into the phone and left the line open; dispatchers heard screams in the background. The 25-year-old victim says her ex-boyfriend entered her apartment, broke down her bathroom door, and assaulted her. He was attempting to kidnap her when she was able to escape and run into the apartment complex office.  The 24-year-old suspect then jumped into his car and drove his vehicle into the front of the building where she was hiding.

When Bellevue officers arrived on the scene, the suspect took off in his vehicle. Officers gave chase as the suspect got onto southbound I-405 when Washington State Patrol troopers assisted. At times the suspect was driving over 80 mph.  The suspect left I-405, driving erratically through Renton and into Seattle. Seattle Police was eventually able to stop and arrest the suspect, but not before he attempted a carjacking.

Detectives are investigating the domestic violence assault, attempted kidnapping and attempted murder at the apartment complex in the 1300 Blk 145 Pl SE. The victim sustained minor injuries.  The suspect was taken to the hospital to be cleared before being booked into jail.

Bellevue Police Arrest Suspects in Homicide

Earlier this week, Bellevue Police investigators arrested four individuals suspected in participating in a homicide that occurred earlier this year at a Bellevue Park. The rare killing marked the first murder in the city in more than three years.

On April 3rd, 18-year-old Josue Flores was found deceased in Goldsmith Park in Bellevue after having been shot several times. Investigators with the Bellevue Police Department immediately began collecting evidence at the scene, and would later recover additional physical and digital evidence that led them to the identification of the four suspects. The investigation has also linked themwith a shooting that occurred in Everett earlier the same night.

Yesterday, investigators with the Bellevue Police Department, including the patrol division, investigations division, SWAT team, and Special Operations Group, working together with investigators from the Everett Police Department, arrested three suspects. Today, a fourth juvenile suspect was arrested after he was released from King County youth detention.

The three adult suspects were booked into the King County Jail for first degree murder. The juvenile was booked into the King County Youth Detention center for first degree murder. The suspects are expected to make their first court appearance today or tomorrow.

Bellevue Chief of Police Steve Mylett, in speaking about this case, stated: “Our entire community is safer with these violent individuals behind bars.” Mylett continued: “I commend the hard work of the many investigators with the Bellevue Police Department, the Everett Police Department, and the King County Prosecutor’s Office that were involved with this case.”

Chief Mylett will be available for media interviews regarding this case today at Bellevue City Hall from 2-3 p.m..

Bellevue Police achieve major staffing milestone

Badge512For the first time in over eight years, the Bellevue Police Department has no openings for commissioned officers. The department hired 21 officers this year and has several applicants lined up when new positions become available.

What made the difference? A $16,000 hiring bonus for experienced officers who want to work in Bellevue. “It’s been amazing to see the response to our lateral officer hiring incentives,” says Chief Steve Mylett. “The City Council approved the $16,000 hiring bonus late last year, and the applications just started rolling in. It was a game-changer.” Mylett adds.

From January through June, 133 officers from agencies all over the country applied with Bellevue Police, that’s more than quadruple the total number of applications received the year before. Besides the hiring bonus, the Chief also added more recruiting staff, background investigators, and trainers. The additional resources sped up the hiring process.

“I commend our recruiters, training staff, and leadership team for their dedication and drive through this process. Everyone has worked incredibly hard, including line officers who helped spread the word about the Bellevue Police Department,” says Chief Mylett.

Police departments nationwide have faced significant obstacles in hiring for the past few decades. A strong economy offers high-paying jobs without the risks associated with a career in law enforcement. Also, baby boomers began retiring, and others have become disenfranchised with police work given the national narrative.

Chief Mylett says once his team identified these issues, he knew he could address them. “Bellevue is an amazing and safe place to work. And our officers receive strong support from the City Council, the City Manager, and City Leadership Team. Most importantly, our department receives tremendous support from the greater Bellevue community. I was confident that all we needed to do was attract the best candidates and show them what we have to offer. And it worked.”

Bellevue Police still have 8.5 non-commissioned positions open, including four Police Support Officers and four in the Records Department. For more information about those openings, please visit Governmentjobs.com.
