Three sought in October robbery, carjacking

Herald staff

MARYSVILLE — Police released a composite drawing Monday and are seeking the public’s help to identify suspects in a carjacking last month.

Three hitchhikers held two Marysville residents, 18 and 17, at gunpoint, then stole their car and personal items, Marysville Police Commander Ralph Krusey said.

The incident occurred Oct. 23 after the two teens in a 1983 Ford Fairmont stopped in a shopping center parking lot in the 100 block of State Avenue and offered a ride to the three men, Krusey said. The hitchhikers directed the pair to the 3500 block of 120th Street NE, where one of them claimed to live. The road turned out to be a dead end.

When the driver stopped, two of the carjackers got out of the back seat and pointed handguns (possibly 9mm pistols) at the driver and passenger, he said. They robbed the pair of items including a wallet, watch, skateboard, portable CD player, silver chain necklace and a T-shirt, Krusey said.

The two armed men then rejoined the third man, who drove the vehicle away with its headlights off. The two victims were uninjured during the robbery.

The three carjackers are wanted on investigation of first-degree robbery. They are described as 18 to 20 years old, about 6 feet tall, with brown or black hair, wearing black "puffy" jackets and jeans. The composite depicts the man who drove the car when the trio stole it, Krusey said.

Everett police recovered the stolen car at an apartment complex in Everett on Nov. 1.

Police ask anyone with information on the robbery or the three men to call the Marysville Police investigations division at 360-651-5050.
