Officers made contact with the victim, a 46-year-old Marysville homeless man. He advised officers that he had woken up to a known subject pointing a gun at him, demanding money that was allegedly owed to him by the victim. The victim told the suspect he didn’t owe him any money at which point the suspect pistol-whipped the victim in the side of the head several times while a second suspect held him down.
The victim’s backpack was taken and both suspects fled the area. A K-9 track was attempted but unsuccessful. The known suspect, a 26-year-old Lake Stevens man is still at large. Attempts to identify the second suspect continue. The investigation is ongoing.
Aid was called for the victim after he complained of dizziness. He was checked out at the scene by medics. His injuries did not require transport to a medical facility.
