At about 7:40 a.m. on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, Arlington Police and Fire Departments responded to a home in the 3700 block of 176th Place NE after a 43-year old woman called 911 to report her husband was threatening to harm her, their three children, and three other occupants of the home. The wife reported the husband held a knife to her and threatened to harm her and take their children. The wife and two of the children in the home were able to flee the home, leaving three other children and another woman inside. The man was reportedly preventing the remaining occupants in the home from leaving.
After two hours, the man exited the residence and was taken into custody without further incident. The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Marysville Police Department, Everett Police Department, Lake Stevens Police Department, Region 1 SWAT team, and Snohomish County Fire District 22 (Getchell) assisted Arlington Police in the peaceful resolution of this incident.
The 34-year old man will be booked into Snohomish County Jail on one count of Assault 2 (Domestic Violence), one count of felony harassment, and one count of unlawful imprisonment.
