Without a word, suspect allegedly stabbed man 13 times

He reportedly spit on an officer and said he stabbed the Marysville man. “And I’ll stab you, too,” he said.

MARYSVILLE — A man was arrested Sunday night after allegedly stabbing another man whom he reportedly knew.

Marysville police responded shortly after 5 p.m. to the 12100 block of 51st Avenue NE. They found a man in his 60s slumped over a kitchen table, bleeding from several stab wounds.

Officers who arrived provided first aid and applied a tourniquet to the man’s arm to prevent further blood loss. Medics transported him to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, where he underwent surgery.

A police report filed in Everett District Court indicates the man had 13 stab wounds: nine in his left arm, four in his left side.

Police searched for the suspect with police dogs from the Lynnwood Police Department and the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. First, they found a knife with blood on it. Then, a few blocks from the scene, they found the suspect, a 32-year-old Granite Falls man. He had blood on his hands and clothes, according to court papers.

He allegedly spit in an officer’s face.

“I stabbed that (expletive) seven times and I’ll stab you, too,” he said, according to court papers.

According to witnesses, the suspect had asked if he could hang out at the Marysville home earlier in the day. Around dinnertime, he asked to talk to the other man.

They went to the family room, but the suspect said nothing. He stared out the window. The other man got up and asked what he wanted to talk about.

The suspect stood up, too, then allegedly stabbed the other man over and over again.

One witness told officers she heard yelling and screaming. She ran into the family room and reportedly saw the attack. The suspect then left the house, still carrying the knife, she reported.

Police booked the man into the Snohomish County Jail in Everett for investigation of first-degree assault.

The suspect previously was charged in a separate case. In 2020, he allegedly threatened to kill a woman’s child at Jim Holm Park in Granite Falls. Documents filed in Snohomish County Superior Court indicate he has an acute mental disorder and is a danger to others. He was detained for 72 hours of involuntary psychiatric treatment.

He is still waiting for trial in that case and was released from custody under the promise that he return for future court hearings and didn’t commit any other crimes.
