2 arrested in Bothell-area kidnapping and robbery

A woman was taken to a hospital. The suspects were taken to jail.

BOTHELL — Two men have been arrested in connection with an alleged robbery and kidnapping north of Bothell, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office reported.

A woman was walking in the 100 block of 194th Street SE Thursday morning when three men confronted her. One allegedly threw her to the ground and put a gun to her head. He took her watch, phone, purse and $600, according to court papers.

The man allegedly hit her in the mouth with the gun. Another man then wrapped duct tape around her head and mouth, she told law enforcement officers. He also bound her wrists, blindfolded her and forced her into a pickup truck before driving her to an apartment complex off the Bothell Everett Highway.

After being confronted by friends of the woman, the suspects cut off her plastic ties and kicked her out of the pickup, she told sheriff’s deputies.

Later, as she walked down a street, a stranger noticed she was distraught, talked with her and called 911.

She was transported to EvergreenHealth hospital in Kirkland.

The woman told deputies she knew one of the assailants.

The sheriff’s office Special Investigations Unit asked the county’s Violent Offender Task Force to help locate the suspects. The task force found a 27-year-old suspect at his apartment and arrested him at about 6 p.m. Thursday for investigation of first-degree kidnapping and first-degree robbery. A 35-year-old suspect was arrested shortly before midnight at a Lynnwood motel on 196th Street SW for investigation of first-degree robbery, the sheriff’s office said.

The handgun allegedly used in the incident was recovered from the motel room, according to the sheriff’s office.

Both suspects were in custody Friday at the Snohomish County Jail.
