4 men ID’d as gang members attack man when he arrives home

He was punched and kicked in an apartment complex parking lot and might have suffered a broken arm.

EVERETT — Four young men, whom police identified as gang members, allegedly attacked a father with his young son nearby Wednesday afternoon.

The suspects watched the man as he parked outside his home at a south Everett apartment complex.

The man asked why they were looking at him so intently, according to a police report. An argument ensued. Then one of the suspects, who had a shaved head and wore a white T-shirt, knocked the victim to the ground.

The others reportedly joined in the attack. A witness said they were punching and kicking the man as he was on the ground, according to court papers.

When medics from the Everett Fire Department arrived, the victim’s arm was “visibly deformed” and most likely broken, the court papers said. The victim was told that he would need to go to the hospital for treatment.

The suspects are between the ages of 18 and 20. Three are from Everett, while the man accused of beginning the attack is from Marysville.

They were booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree assault.

The victim, 35, told police that he did not know his assailants.

Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin issued an order in January to tackle gang violence. Her initiatives include a new gang-response unit and increased focus on secure gun storage, as well as reaching out to kids in school.

Police counted 80 reports of gunfire, at least 27 of which were gang related, between December 2016 and December 2017. About 10 percent of those cases took place along a mile-long stretch of W. Casino Road, which is near the victim’s home.
