Marysville police use stun gun to subdue man with knife

MARYSVILLE — Police in Marysville used an electronic stun gun Monday afternoon to subdue a man who walked toward them with a knife in his hand, according to court documents.

The suspect, 64, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of two counts of assault.

A Marysville man, 35, told police that he saw the suspect shirtless and without shoes standing outside an apartment unit in the 1300 block of Cedar Avenue. The suspect reportedly reached into his pocket, pulled out a large knife and began walking toward him while making stabbing motions.

When police arrived, the man allegedly pulled the knife from a back pocket and began walking down the stairs toward them. They ordered him to drop the knife, but he continued walking in their direction. Three officers had their guns drawn, according to court records.

He was shot with a stun gun when he was within eight feet, court papers said. He fell to the ground. He was taken to a hospital before being taken to the jail.

While at the hospital, he allegedly punched a medical worker in the mouth.
