A violent career criminal that was recently featured on Seattle District Attorney's top 100 criminals list, was arrested by Seattle police officers on Thursday after carjacking a vehicle with an infant inside.

Suspect Kevin Gregory Myhre, a 33-year-old white male, was charged on Thursday with kidnapping, auto theft, DUI, reckless driving, and hit-and-run.

Seattle police officers responded to reports of a rollover collision at 12th and Olive around 11 am on Thursday.

Multiple sources in the Seattle Police Department told The Post Millennial that the male victim briefly exited his vehicle, leaving his 5-month-old child inside. Myhre quickly carjacked the vehicle and fled the scene with the child.

Observing the situation unfold, the victim ran after Myhre on foot in an attempt to stop the vehicle and potentially save his child's life.

The victim eventually caught up to Myhre when he was stopped at a red light and tried to intervene by hitting the car window with his fist.

The victim was unable to stop the suspect who began to drive recklessly, swerving through oncoming traffic. Myhre then collided with another vehicle which caused the stolen vehicle to flip, with the child still inside, according to sources.

After the collision, Myhre ran off on foot and was spotted by Seattle police officers outside of the East Precinct, where he was placed under arrest after questioning.

The child sustained no injuries during the incident, according to police documents obtained by The Post Millennial.

Officers also located narcotics on Myhre who sustained a head injury during the collision and was later transported to Harborview Medical Center by the Seattle Fire Department after evaluation.

As of Thursday night, Myhre has not yet been booked into King County Jail, according to records.

In addition to Thursday's charges, Kevin Gregory Myhre has a lengthy list of priors and was one of the 118 criminals listed on Republican Seattle City Attorney Ann Davison's "High Utilizer Initiative" that was released in March.

According to Davison's office, 118 repeat offenders "have been responsible for over 2,400 criminal cases over the past five years."

The "High Utilizer Initiative" will "identify individuals responsible for repeat criminal activity across the City of Seattle and aims to dramatically reduce their public safety impacts."

Davison said that the initiative "will directly address the individuals who create a disproportionate impact on public safety in Seattle."

"I will coordinate closely with the Seattle Police Department, the King County Prosecutor's Office, and the King County Jail to disrupt the cycle of crime for these individuals," Davison added.

Criminal activity has drastically increased in Seattle due to lack of prosecution for repeat offenders and not enough deployable officers to keep the community safe following the "Defund the Police" movement, which slashed the police budget by more than $50 million and resulted in officers leaving the department in droves.

A similar incident happened in Ballard, a suburb of Seattle, last month when a homeless repeat offender stole a father's car with his 5-year-old child inside, according to KOMO News.
