SEATTLE (AP) -- 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 says 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 a judge and a deputy. Investigators believe he called his mother for a ride out of the area after the attack.
