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.
