Authorities have arrested the suspect in Friday’s Grays Harbor County Courthouse attack after his mother called police to turn him in, said Undersheriff Rick Scott.

Scott said the mother of the 34-year-old suspect called a Thurston County dispatch center after police released a flier with her photo and her son’s photo. She told police that her son, Steven Daniel Kravetz, was at her Olympia home.

Kravetz was arrested without incident at about 1:30 p.m. Evidence linking him to the assault, including a handgun belonging to the injured deputy, was recovered, the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office said.

Kravetz is a suspect in the attack Friday at the Grays Harbor County Courthouse that left a judge and the sheriff’s deputy wounded.

Scott said Kravetz’s mother picked him up at an attorney’s office after the attack and drove him to Olympia. Authorities are interviewing the mother, Roberta L. Dougherty.
