high speed chase grandview

GRANDVIEW, WA - A kidnapping suspect is behind bars after leading police on a high-speed chase throughout three cities Wednesday night.

This all started when Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies and Mabton Police responded to the 100 block of Monroe Street for a possible assault with a gun and hostage situation.

When they got there, police saw 40-year-old Oswaldo Manuel Herrera get into a car with a woman. The Mabton Officer waited for back up and then attempted a high risk stop on the vehicle.  The vehicle pulled over initially but then fled again.

This started a high speed chase involving multiple agencies including the Washington State Patrol, Grandview Police Department, Sunnyside Police Department, Granger Police Department and the Benton County Sheriff’s Office. 

He led deputies and officers on a 30 minute chase through Prosser, Grandview, and Yakima County.

When in Grandview, the woman was able to safely get out of the car.  Herrera then continued to lead police on high-speed chase which ended in the 3300 block of Tear Road near Sunnyside.  

That's when Benton County K9 Sable and deputies tracked him after he ran away. He gave up when he heard Sable approaching him as he hid in the mud.

He was arrested and turned over to Yakima County where he will face a multitude of felony charges.
