Hatchet attack near Totem Middle School fractures man’s skull

Police are looking for two suspects, a man and woman, who had met up with the victim.

MARYSVILLE — A man was reportedly struck in the head several times with a hatchet March 2, according to Marysville police.

The victim said he met up with a man and woman on State Avenue shortly before midnight and walked over to Totem Middle School in Marysville. He was reaching into his backpack when someone attacked him with the hatchet.

He escaped with head wounds to the parking lot of a Taco Bell at 616 State Ave., and told people there that he had been attacked. Police say he is recovering from multiple skull fractures.

Marysville police responded to the scene at 11:40 p.m., but couldn’t find the two suspects.

The man is about 19, 6-foot, thin and has long brown hair, which was pulled up into a beanie. He had a pockmarked complexion and wore jeans and a gray sweatshirt. The victim said he might go by the name Lucky.

The woman is also about 19, and thin with long brown hair. She was wearing dark high heels, stretch pants and a white Adidas jacket.
