A man wanted for second-degree attempted murder led Okanogan County Sheriff’s deputies on a wild car and foot chase through Oroville Saturday afternoon before eventually being arrested.
The sheriff’s office says 29-year-old Sean Dahlquist struck 22-year-old Bradley Keener with a propane tank, then cut his face with a knife at a residence on Juniper Road.
Dahlquist reportedly had gone to the home after being called by Keener’s girlfriend, who said she and Keener were having a disagreement.
After the altercation, Keener fled to a residence on Balmes Road where someone at that house called 911.
That started a search for Dahlquist, who was spotted driving on North Main Street in Oroville.
A chase through town ensued at speeds up to 70 miles per hour before Dahlquist jumped out of the moving vehicle on South Main Street.
A deputy gave chase on foot and caught Dahlquist after the suspect tripped while trying to enter an apartment.
He faces charges of second-degree attempted murder and eluding. He is currently being held in the Okanogan County Jail.
Keener, meanwhile, was treated for his injuries at North Valley Hospital in Tonasket.
