Third man arrested in Bothell-area kidnapping, robbery, rape

The first two suspects were arrested last week and detectives are continuing to investigate.

BOTHELL — A third suspect has been arrested in connection with an alleged robbery, kidnapping and rape north of Bothell last week, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office reported.

A woman was walking in the 100 block of 194th Street SE the morning of July 8 when three men confronted her. One allegedly threw her to the ground and put a gun to her head. He took her watch, phone, purse and $600, according to court papers.

The suspect, a 36-year-old man from Snohomish, allegedly hit her in the mouth with the gun.

Another man then wrapped duct tape around her head and mouth, she told law enforcement officers. The Snohomish man allegedly raped her.

The other man bound her wrists, blindfolded her and forced her into a pickup truck before driving her to an apartment complex off the Bothell-Everett Highway.

Later, after being confronted by friends of the woman, the suspects cut off her plastic ties and kicked her out of the pickup, she told sheriff’s deputies.

As she walked down a street, a stranger noticed she was distraught, talked with her and called 911.

She was taken to EvergreenHealth hospital in Kirkland.

The woman told deputies she knew one of the assailants.

The first two suspects were arrested July 8. A 27-year-old man was booked for investigation of first-degree kidnapping and first-degree robbery. A 35-year-old suspect was arrested for investigation of first-degree robbery, the sheriff’s office said.

The Snohomish man was arrested around 2 p.m. Thursday at an Everett apartment for investigation of first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree robbery and second-degree assault. He was in custody Friday.

While searching his apartment, detectives found two guns, the sheriff’s office said. One was believed to be the gun used during the July 8 incident and the other was reported stolen in Seattle in 2020.

Detectives also plan to charge one of the suspects with first-degree arson after further investigation, the sheriff’s office said Friday. After the incident, the truck was allegedly set aflame by one of the suspects.
