1 suspect in home-invasion robbery video turns himself in

EVERETT — One of the suspects in a home-invasion robbery south of Everett last week has turned himself in, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office reported Monday.

The 27-year-old Seattle man flagged down a Snohomish County sheriff’s captain Friday in the 1100 block of 164th Street SW. He allegedly said he was one of the suspects in a webcam video from a robbery and assault that was broadcast and shared widely on social media.

He was taken into custody and booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree robbery. He has not offered any further information about the incident or the other suspect, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.

The robbery occurred around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday in a neighborhood in the 1200 block of 126th Street SW. The suspects reportedly kicked down three doors and confronted the 45-year-old homeowner. She was found hiding in the bathroom, where she had called 911. They allegedly ripped a gold jade necklace from her neck, stole her phone and fled.

Deputies found a shoe print on the front door. Video showed the woman was in “great distress, whimpering and yelling and telling the suspects not to harm her,” according to court papers.

It is believed that the pressure created by wide exposure of the suspect’s photo on various social media and news stories led to the suspect giving himself up, Ireton said.

An anonymous tip also led to the suspect’s Facebook page.

Identification of the second suspect has yet to be confirmed and he remains at large.
