Violent Suspect Loose After Yakima Area Traffic Stop
Yakima County and other authorities down the valley are on the lookout for a man wanted in connection with an assault and other possible crimes. And, he's considered armed and "violent," as well as extremely dangerous.
Sunday night, Yakima County deputies responded to a report of an assault near North Track Road and Winaway Road in Yakima County.
The deputy pulled over a vehicle in the area, and found two men and a woman inside. The deputy searched the vehicle, and one of the suspects had a gun on him. He was arrested, as was the woman. She tried to flee through a grape orchard but was caught.
However, the third suspect, Francis "Frank" White, escaped, and police say he's considered "violent and armed," and therefore "extremely" dangerous.
He could be, say officials, connected to other crimes. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Yakima County Sherriff's office at (509)-248-9980.
