A man wanted for allegedly threatening to kill a Lewis and Clark County woman’s boyfriend, and trespassing at a residence, was apprehended in Flathead County after authorities deployed a spike strip just outside of Glacier National Park’s west entrance. Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton says his department put out an alert to locate John Jack Alexander Saxten the 4th, and a pursuit reportedly started up in Glacier County.
The pursuit ended on Highway 2, just outside of West Glacier.
Glacier County investigators say dispatchers received a call at around noon from a driver, reporting a man wearing a ski mask-type headwear had stopped in the street, gotten out of his vehicle and brandished a shotgun. The suspect then allegedly fled the scene. The pursuit then allegedly began shortly after that incident.
The agencies that assisted in the apprehension of Saxten include Blackfeet Law Enforcement Services, the Montana Highway Patrol, the Glacier County Sheriff’s Office and the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office.
