Police: Man showed up to ex-wife’s Everett home, stabbed ex-roommate

The suspect, 47, of Seattle, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree assault.

EVERETT — A man showed up on Monday to an apartment he once lived in, allegedly stabbed a former roommate and slashed his ex-wife’s tires, according to police.

The suspect, 47, of Seattle, reportedly appeared outside the home of his ex-wife and former roommate around 8:30 a.m. that day.

The ex-wife woke up to banging on her front door, she told police. She looked out the window and saw her ex-husband inside her car in the parking lot.

She alerted two roommates her ex-husband was outside. One roommate went to confront him and pulled him from the car, the report says.

The ex-husband turned around and used a knife to stab the roommate in his side. The roommate fled as the ex-husband kept trying to stab him. Somebody else who witnessed the attack ran up and sprayed bear mace in the ex-husband’s face, police wrote, but that did not stop him.

Neighbors called 911. The roommate got away.

Police reported they arrived at the scene and saw blood in the parking lot. The roommate was lying on his side on a staircase leading up to his apartment, according to the charges.

The tires on the ex-wife’s car had been slashed, police wrote.

People who knew the suspect told police where he’d be — at an apartment complex in the 11000 block of 4th Avenue West.

The suspect was arrested and booked into the Snohomish County Jail Monday afternoon for investigation of first-degree domestic violence assault and second-degree domestic violence malicious mischief.

The suspect did not appear at a bail hearing Tuesday afternoon because he was in medical isolation, according to a defense attorney.
