She allegedly sprayed her ex-roommate in the eyes with Lysol

He says he couldn’t see for 10 minutes. She reportedly was disappointed he wasn’t permanently blinded.

EVERETT — The suspect reportedly was angry with her former roommate.

Angry enough to spray him in his eyes with Lysol disinfectant, according to allegations made in a police report.

The incident was reported shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday outside a supermarket along Evergreen Way.

The victim complained of extreme pain and told police he was unable to see for nearly 10 minutes.

The suspect reportedly said the man, her ex-roommate, owed her money and that she tried to “blind him” using the Lysol. She allegedly was “upset after learning that the victim was not permanently blinded but only in extreme pain,” an Everett police officer wrote.

The woman, 49, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of felony domestic violence assault. She’s also accused of striking the man in the face, chest and arms with a stick.

Several people filed witness statements.

“The use of Lysol in this incident was used as a poison or other destructive or noxious substance which caused extreme pain and agony,” the officer wrote.

An Everett District Court judge set bail at $10,000. A prosecutor asked for $50,000 bail, saying the woman is a threat to community safety. A defense attorney argued against requiring bail, pointing out that the woman has no criminal history.

The suspect has been ordered to have no contact with the victim.
