A Seattle Police officer was injured while trying to subdue a wanted man January 22 at Garfield Community Center. Officers used a Taser on the man before placing him under arrest. It is not clear from the report how the officer was injured.

According to the police report, officers saw a man sitting on a park bench near the Center and recognized him from past incidents. They ran his information, which showed he had a felony escape warrant from the Department of Corrections (DOC).

By the time the officers attempted to make contact with the suspect, around 1 p.m., he had gone inside the Community Center. They went inside after him and found him near the north entryway. The officers tried to place him into custody.
