Des Moines Police Department shared on Facebook:
'On 04/23/16 The Des Moines Police Department received a phone call reporting a suspicious person sleeping in a vehicle at the Silverwood Apartments in Des Moines. After providing false information to the responding officer, the suspect proceeded to ramming the officer's driver's side door trapping him in the patrol car. The suspect fled the scene, but was later located at a motel in Shoreline. A DMPD Officer as well as a King County Deputy with the City of Shoreline responded to the motel. Upon answering the door the suspect fled on foot assaulting the officers in his attempt to flee. The deputy and the officer both grabbed onto the suspect and were drug along the road. K9 responded to the scene and was successfully applied. We are pleased to announce that Washington's Most Wanted fugitive Isaias Fernandez has been successfully apprehended, and the responding officers only sustained minor injuries. Upon search of the motel room, the NW Violent Offender Task Force located stolen firearms. In a situation that could have ended very badly, we are happy to have a dangerous criminal off the streets.'
Fernandez was last living in SeaTac.
