Kirkland police arrest 2 in violent home-invasion robbery
Kirkland police say two men have been arrested in connection with an Oct. 12 home-invasion robbery and assault in the Kingsgate area of Kirkland.
One of the victims, a young man, suffered slash wounds on his head, shoulder and leg.
The home invasion, near the 13200 block of 136th Avenue Northeast, happened just before 5 a.m.
After he was assaulted, the young man ran for help to several houses until getting a response. He finally got help from Miles Calvert, who had trained as an emergency medical technician and who put a tourniquet on the man’s leg.
Calvert said the young man, whom he didn’t know, was yelling for help, and worried about family still inside the ransacked house.
In a news release Friday night, Kirkland police said they arrested one of the suspects in Burien at about 1 p.m. Thursday. He was being held on a couple of warrants; charges in connection with the Oct. 12 attack and robbery were pending.
In another release Friday night, police said they had arrested the second suspect with the assistance of U.S. Marshalls.
