BELLEVUE, Wash. — A 20-year-old carjacking suspect is in custody after allegedly assaulting a valet attendant and stealing a car in Bellevue on Tuesday morning.

The suspect shoved the valet to the ground, stole the keys to a Camaro, and fled, the valet told Bellevue police.

The incident happened near Bel-Red Road and NE 24th Street, according to Bellevue police.

Shortly after, the suspect crashed into another vehicle and ran. Nobody was injured in the crash.

About 45 minutes later, officers saw the suspect running near Bel-Red Road and 124th Avenue NE. Two officers arrested him after a short chase. 

Two officers suffered minor injuries.
