K-9 Police Officer Hobbs is a hero – again – after locating a carjacking suspect.

Hobbs found a dangerous suspect who attempted to carjack a couple late Sunday, Oct. 28.

The couple was in the 1000 block of Maple Street in Edmonds when approached by a 31-year-old man from Mountlake Terrace.

According to Edmonds Police, the suspect said he would shoot them if they did not give him their vehicle. The couple was able to delay, and the man fled in a white sedan, which responding officers later found nearby.

It turns out the vehicle had been taken earlier during a carjacking in Northgate, in the 10500 block of Aurora Avenue North.

K-9 Hobbs searched the area and found the suspect – he didn’t get far – hiding in a thicket of woods in the 1000 block of Cedar Street, east of Ninth Avenue South.

After being taken into custody, the suspect tried fighting with officers and hurled racial slurs at them.

He was treated at a nearby hospital before being taken to Snohomish County Jail and booked for robbery, assault, and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Edmonds detectives are working with Seattle PD in the case.
