Seattle cops search for wall-scaling suspect dubbed ‘Peter Parkour’

Suspect scaled a 3-story condo in an attempt to break in

By PoliceOne Staff

SEATTLE — Police in Seattle are on the lookout for a suspect who scaled a 3-story condo in an attempt to break in.

According to My Northwest, the resident of the condo called police Sunday during the attempt and the suspect fled the scene toward a nearby pier.

Seattle police surrounded and searched the area. Harbor patrols were instructed to search the water, but the man was not found.

"He's definitely got some climbing skills on him," Officer Patrick Michaud said. “We need to figure out who this guy is. If he's capable of climbing up to somebody's third-story apartment building, that's definitely of concern for people living up there as well as for police."

The suspect — who police have nicknamed ‘Peter Parkour,’ was last seen scaling a 12-foot fence, according to the report.
