The stolen car and driver involved in a Seattle carjacking where a developmentally disabled man was taken Friday were found by police in Portland overnight.
Seattle police say the stolen BMW was located in Portland and a 31-year-old male suspect was taken into custody. Detectives are working with authorities in Oregon to have the suspect returned to Seattle.
The carjacking happened around 6:45 p.m. Friday in Seattle's International District. The vehicle was parked near the Seattle Pinball Museum when a suspect took the car with the 33-year-old victim inside.
An alert was issued for the victim, who his mother said has the mental capacity of a 5-year-old. Police safely located him a short time later in Pioneer Square. He was safe and unharmed.
About one hour after the carjacking, a Seattle police officer began following a vehicle believed to be the BMW along Interstate 5 near SR 599. When the officer realized this was not the suspect, they attempted to pull off the highway but collided with a pickup truck and landed on its side.
Two passengers in the truck and the officer did not receive serious injuries.
