Tre’Donnis Washington arrested after K9 track which was assisted by multiple citizen callers

At 3:24 PM on Monday, October 21, 2019, Anchorage Police responded to the 3600-block of W 88th Avenue in reference to a disturbance involving a weapon.   Initial indications are that 21-year-old Tre’Donnis R. Washington and his girlfriend got into a verbal altercation inside an apartment.  During the argument the adult female called her brother to come pick her up.  This angered Washington who took the victim’s phone and threw it against a wall.  The victim walked outside; Washington followed her, pushed her up against the building, put his hand around her throat, and began yelling at her. 
 
The victim’s brother showed up on scene with a handgun.  The brother handed the gun to his sister and then proceeded to get into a physical fight with Washington.  During the altercation Washington broke an exterior window of the apartment complex, threw and broke the brother’s phone, and kicked the brother’s car in several areas which caused damage.  No shots were fired.
 
When officers arrived Washington had already gone back inside the apartment.  While police were contacting the victim, her brother, and other witnesses outside, they were informed that Washington had just jumped out of an apartment window and was running away.  Several more officers arrived and a perimeter was set up.  A K9 track began which eventually led to Washington’s location in the woods near the 8900-block of Blackberry Street.  Washington followed the officer’s commands and was taken into custody.
 
Washington was remanded at the Anchorage Jail on two outstanding warrants (one felony and one misdemeanor).  He was additionally charged with Resisting, Criminal Mischief III, and Assault II.
 
While officers were interviewing witnesses they came into contact with 39-year-old Christopher T. Seaton.  He was remanded at the jail on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant.
 
Due to the proximity of the incident to Chinook Elementary School, the School went into lockdown shortly after 3:50 PM which lasted less than 20 minutes.
 
During the K9 track multiple citizens called APD Dispatch to report Washington’s location as he was running through neighborhoods.  We are very grateful for the public’s help.
