Hoquiam Police responding to separate incidents in the same area last night made one arrest on felony warrants. Officer Daniel McCartney tells us they received separate reports of an assault, and an attempted kidnapping in the 300 block of 28th street around 8 last night.
The attempted kidnapping turned out to be unfounded, and is under further investigation. McCartney said a county K9 unit was called in to assist when the first officer on scene of the assault investigation spotted a man known to officers to have felony warrants fleeing the scene. After a brief K9 track the man was taken into custody, and booked into the Hoquiam jail.
