Man suspected of child abuse in Hawaii arrested in Shoreline

He was wanted for investigation of seven counts of child sexual assault and abuse in Maui.

SHORELINE — A man was arrested in Shoreline Friday morning for investigation of seven counts of first-degree child sexual assault and promoting child abuse, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The arrest is related to felony warrants out of Maui, Hawaii, according to a press release. The man, 49, has previous ties to Snohomish County, and is a convicted sex offender who allegedly failed to register with law enforcement in Washington.

Authorities in Maui had requested assistance from the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force in June. Deputies made the arrest at a construction site in Shoreline around 11:30 a.m. Friday. He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail, where he awaits extradition to Hawaii.
