EVERETT — Police are looking for a man accused of beating a former roommate over the head with a shovel, resulting in serious injuries that required hospitalization.

Sable Rodriguez, 32, is accused of first-degree assault stemming from the Sunday afternoon attack, Everett police wrote in a news release. They are seeking information about his whereabouts.

Rodriguezreturned to the home in the 7500 block of Juniper Drive where he had been evicted by his roommates “due to decreased mental stability and increased erratic, dangerous behavior,” police said.

Police allege that Rodriguez attacked a roommate with a metal tool and later with the shovel, which the victim had used to try to defend himself. Rodriguez fled when other roommates called 911.

The victim was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.

Rodriguez was last seen driving a dark-green 2000 Honda Civic with chrome rims and a loud exhaust. The license plate is BSE8147.

Police described Rodriguez as a transient known to visit Kent, Seattle and Everett. He is considered a danger to others because of his mental state, Everett police wrote.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Everett Police Department tip line at 425-257-8450.
