UPDATE (3:22 p.m.): Lockdown’s been lifted. Fremont police Detective Bill Veteran said a guy suspected of attempted sexual assault (see previous blog entry) was arrested without incident at the Parkwood Place apartment complex this afternoon. The apartment is across from Washington High.

Turns out the suspect was not 30, as previously described, but is 16 and a student from WHS.

ORIGINAL ENTRY: Washington High School in Fremont is in lockdown right now, as police apparently are searching for a man in a nearby apartment complex.

A WHS employee said whatever’s going on is taking place off campus and that it has nothing to do with students/staff at the school. The school is in lockdown just to be safe.
