Wednesday Assault In Safeway Parking Lot Not A Carjacking
An assault in the parking lot of the 5th Avenue Safeway Wednesday was first reported as a possible carjacking. But Yakima Police spokesman Mike Bastinelli says it turned out to be a dispute between two people in the lot. He says it started when a man was driving into the lot and exchanged words with another driver. The other driver then pulled a gun and assaulted the victim. The suspect driver then jumped into his own car and took off. "We were able to locate him at a home on Cherry Avenue and he was taken into custody."
The suspect is being held in the Yakima County ail on an assault charge.
