Two alleged car thieves, one who fled on foot, were the spectacle amidst little goblins, ghouls and other trick-or-treaters in downtown Kirkland on Wednesday.

Kirkland police responded to a car theft at approximately 8:30 p.m. Oct. 31 on Lake Street. Dozens of witnesses in Halloween garb looked on as police apprehended two male suspects in their mid-40s. Witnesses said one of the suspects fled on foot, which caused police to bring in a K-9 unit.

“(I) saw one guy getting put in a squad car, and another on the ground in cuffs,” a witness told the Reporter. “Some cars were further down Lake Street, like they were forming a perimeter.”

The suspect was apprehended soon after. Witnesses say many police officers responded to the crime, which was near the Tully’s and Ben & Jerry’s area.
