Hatchet Attack Leaves Man Hospitalized

Marysville – 03.07.19 – 9:00 PM

On the night of March 2nd, 2019 at around 11:40 PM, Marysville Police were dispatched to a report of an assault with a weapon at Taco Bell, 616 State Avenue in Marysville. A 32-year old Marysville man had walked into the parking lot bleeding profusely from head wounds, which he told witnesses were caused by being struck in the head with an axe at Totem Middle School, just across the street from Taco Bell.

The victim reported that he met with a male and female on State Avenue, and that together, the three walked to the Totem Middle School campus. While there, the victim stated that he reached into his backpack, and was struck in the head with a hatchet. He was able to escape and get to the nearby restaurant to get help.

The two suspects, a male and female, remain at large. The male is described as white, approximately 19 years old, around six feet tall and thin, with a pockmarked complexion and long brown hair pulled up inside a beanie cap. He was also wearing jeans and a gray sweatshirt. According to the victim, the male possibly uses the nickname “Lucky.”

The female, also estimated to be about 19 years old and white, has a thin build and long brown hair. She was reportedly wearing dark high heels, stretch pants, and a white Adidas Jacket.

The victim is recovering from multiple skull fractures as a result of the assault.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident or the identity of either of the two suspects is encouraged to contact Detective Cori Shackleton at (360) 363-8364, cshackleton@marysvillewa.gov, or call 911 and ask to speak with a Marysville Officer.
