SEATTLE -- Police in Washington state have arrested a 34-year-old man accused of stabbing a judge and shooting a sheriff's deputy in a courthouse struggle, ending a manhunt that spanned two counties.

Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott said Steven Daniel Kravetz was taken into custody without incident Saturday afternoon by authorities in Olympia. He did not have further details.

Scott identified Kravetz earlier in the day as the lone assailant in Friday's courthouse attack in Montesano, Wash., that wounded Judge David Edwards and Deputy Polly Davin. Investigators believe he called his mother for a ride out of the area after the attack.

Dozens of law enforcement officers searched for the suspected attacker Saturday, before he was found in Olympia.

Olympia Police Lt. Jim Costa told the Olympian newspaper that Kravetz gave himself up voluntarily about 1:30 p.m. No one was injured. He was taken to Mason County jail.

"He acted alone and we know him to be the assailant," Scott said.

Kravetz fled the courthouse with the officer's .45-caliber handgun after the attack, showed up about an hour later at the office of his former attorney and asked to use the phone, Scott said. The attorney had represented Kravetz years ago and "didn't know anything was up," Scott said.

Investigators believe Kravetz called his mom, identified as Roberta Dougherty, about 3 p.m. and that she apparently gave him a ride out of the area, Scott said. "We don't know what her knowledge or involvement is," the undersheriff said.

The judge and the sheriff's deputy were treated and released from a hospital.
