A large manhunt shut down parts of Seattle's Ravenna neighborhood Wednesday as Snohomish County Sheriff's deputies and Seattle police tried to track down a convicted felon wanted in connection for an armed robbery who eluded police twice in a week.

Everett police have been looking for Timothy Lussier since last week, said Sheri Ireton with the Sonohomish County Sheriff's Office.

Lussier had reportedly been impersonating a police officer, kicking in people's doors to their homes, tying them up, and robbing them.

A violent offender task force located him in the Kenmore area Thursday, where he fled in a stolen car.

"There was a brief pursuit that followed and the suspect then ditched the stolen vehicle in the Ravenna area," Ireton said.

Lussier is considered armed and dangerous and is wanted on several outstanding warrants. He narrowly escaped capture last week when deputies tracked him to the Clearview area.
