Since Saturday, detectives have worked with a 33 year-old man, who was left on the side of Hwy-526 after a robbery, to identify the suspects involved. As of this evening, probable cause was developed and two suspects were arrested in Spokane, WA.
At about 8:00 pm on Saturday, officers responded to the 700 block of SE Hwy-526 on the report of an injured man on the side of the highway. Arriving officers found a victim with injuries to his neck and head. The victim told officers he had been at the Quil Ceda Creek Casino in Marysville, WA where he met up with a male, the males’ girlfriend and another female he befriended the day before. The male and his girlfriend agreed to give the victim a ride home and they drove him into Everett. The victim said that after making a stop, the male sat behind him and started to assault him as they drove. The victim blacked out and woke up on the side of the highway with his wallet and $2,400 cash missing.
