Man arrested in alleged home invasion in Everett

EVERETT — An Everett man is accused of an armed home invasion of his neighbor’s apartment. No injuries were reported.

The man, 28, is a former gang member, according to the arrest report.

He is accused of kicking down a neighbor’s door around 9:20 a.m. Tuesday at the North Creek Apartments near 112th Street SE. He allegedly carried a semi-automatic pistol.

Two people were home at the time. They locked themselves in a bedroom, and one hid in a closet and called 911, the report said. The suspect was found a few blocks away, and a gun was recovered from a nearby yard. He was arrested for investigation of first-degree burglary and illegal firearm possession.

The victims said they did not know the man but had seen him in the neighborhood. Everett police have not determined a motive for the incident but don’t believe it’s gang-related, officer Aaron Snell said Wednesday.

The arrest report indicates the man had used meth, which “might have led to his behavior,” Snell said.
