Police: Everett man left family member with life-threatening injuries

An Everett man, 23, was in jail on $100,000 bail after being accused of confronting women and attacking a relative.

EVERETT — Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Friday for investigation of attacking a family member and leaving her with life-threatening injuries.

The incident has led to an increased police presence near south Everett, neighbors reported.

Around 10 a.m. Friday, three women finished working out inside a garage in the 3800 block of 119th Place SE. As two of them left and walked to their cars, the suspect, 23, confronted them, according to a sheriff’s office media release sent at 5:50 p.m. Monday.

The man reportedly prevented one woman from getting into her car. One of the other women yelled at him to stop. He turned and ran toward her, the sheriff’s office reported. The woman grabbed a can of bear spray from her garage.

When she turned around, she was face-to-face with the man. He grabbed her arm, according to police. She sprayed him in the face. The man fled.

Neighbors found the suspect submerged in a nearby pond. Another neighbor recognized the man, as he lived nearby.

That neighbor walked to the suspect’s home and found a 51-year-old woman unconscious with severe injuries to her head, according to the sheriff’s office. The woman was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett with life-threatening injuries. Her condition has reportedly since stabilized.

Detectives believe an object inside the home was used in the assault, sheriff’s office spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe said.

Sheriff’s deputies reported the suspect resisted arrest. They reported firing pepper balls and a Taser at the man.

The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree assault and second-degree burglary. He was being held with bail set at $100,000.

The investigation remained active Monday.
