Suspect Goes ‘Parkour’ on Police, Taken Down Anyway
Parkour is a sport where people leap from building to building, climb walls, jump and run and more. A suspect fleeing Kennewick police Sunday tried many of those, and still failed.
Officers were called to the 1200 block of West Bruneau after a man called 911 to report an intruder. The suspect reportedly accessed a building through an unlocked door then tried to break into a residence. The homeowner confronted him and he fled.
Officers located 25-year-old Dah Ler in the 1100 block of West Bruneau, where he'd swam across the canal. H then fled on foot, jumping several fences in the process. He then fled across the railroad tracks near the West 1100 block of Entiat before climbing on top of a box truck. He was surrounded by officers and 'persuaded' to come down.
Now he's facing multiple counts of trespassing, resisting arrest and officer obstruction. No one was injured in the incident, but Ler's Parkour days are over.
