4 arrested after Mukilteo home invasion, pursuit

Four men are in custody following a home-invasion robbery and police pursuit last night in Mukilteo.

Three of the men forced their way into the home of a Mukilteo man just before 9:30 p.m. near the 9800 block of Marine View Drive, according to a Mukilteo police news release. The homeowner’s daughters and several of her friends arrived home as the robbery was taking place, and witnesses reported hearing a gunshot inside the home. The homeowner, a 44-year-old man, suffered some facial cuts from being struck by a pistol during the robbery.

The three men fled in a vehicle that was being driven by the fourth suspect, firing a gunshot from the car as it pulled away. Police spotted the car near Harbour Pointe Boulevard and the Mukilteo Speedway, where the car struck two vehicles. The suspects’ car finally stopped near the 10500 block of the Mukilteo Speedway, where all four men ran into nearby woods.

They were located and arrested with help from a Lynnwood police dog, along with  Edmonds police and the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The four suspects — ages 24, 23, 19, and 18 and all from Kent — will be booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and drive-by shooting, police said.
