Snohomish County sheriff's deputies arrested a man this morning for reportedly attacking two people, stealing a woman's BMW and leading officers on a pursuit through South Everett.

Shortly after 7 a.m., deputies were dispatched to an assisted-living center in the 11300 block of Third Place West after a report of a man walking into the facility and hitting an employee in the face, said sheriff's spokeswoman Rebecca Hover.

The suspect left the center and went to a parking lot across the street and asked a woman to help jump-start his car. The man then pushed the woman out of the way, grabbed her keys and drove off in her BMW, Hover said.

Deputies chased the man to a dead-end street, where he jumped out of the car and ran, Hover said. Deputies set up a containment scene and brought in tracking dogs.

Around 9:30 a.m., a woman in the 9600 block of Lowell-Larimer Road, close to the containment scene, called 911 to report a strange man on her property. The carjacking and assault suspect was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on a variety of charges, Hover said.
