CAPTURED — May 14, 2018 

SeaTac Police  arrested William Thompson aka ‘Lil Monster Ratt’ on Monday at the Hanover Apartments in SeaTac.   “Thanks to one of the Washington’s Most Wanted viewers, they provided the tip where he was staying. He was staying in an apartment in SeaTac and that tipster also provided a vehicle description and license plate number so one of our detectives immediately went over to the apartment complex and located that vehicle. A short time later, an associate of Thompson’s pulled into the parking lot and Thompson came out of his apartment and got into that vehicle. Detectives came and took Thompson into custody without incident and served a search warrant on the vehicle that Thompson was in at the time of arrest. There were two guns and some drugs in that vehicle,” said King County Sgt. Christine Elias.
Thompson is Washington’s Most Wanted Capture #989.

Meet ‘Lil Monster Ratt.’

That’s the street name of William Thompson — a gang member and ten-time convicted domestic violence offender who’s wanted in King County for violating a “no contact” order.

He’s accused of terrorizing one of his victims in a Popeye’s parking lot in Kent earlier this year — a woman he’s not supposed to be anywhere near.

“He located her at a restaurant. He went up to her, tried to talk to her,” said King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Abbott. “She ran out to her car, locked the door, he went out and started punching the window to try to break the window, to get into where the victim was at. She was able to escape out of the car, ran back into the restaurant and the suspect followed her and punched her multiple times in the shoulder and he also told her he was going to kill her and as he said that he was grabbing at his waistband and she knew that he was usually carried a gun with him, so she was in fear for her life. 911 was called, police were called. He fled the scene and we have not been able to locate him.”

He has a $75,000 warrant for his arrest.

He’s 32 years old, 5’5”, weighs 170 pounds and has his arms full of tattoos.
