Everett police release video of man who assaulted janitor

Everett police have released surveillance video of a man who brutally assaulted a night janitor in November.

Around 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 8, 2013, the janitor working at the Everett Mall cinemas walked past a man sitting in the hallway, who then yelled at the janitor. Because he speaks little English, the janitor did not understand the man and continued walking. The man followed the janitor, punched him in the head multiple times, and when the janitor fell to the ground, the man kicked him in the head repeatedly.

He then pulled out a knife and cut the janitor’s throat. The janitor, who had severe injuries to his face, suffered a concussion and had a small cut on his throat, ran away and yelled for someone to call 911 after the man suddenly stopped.

Detectives have been unable to identify the assailant and are seeking the public’s help. Anyone with information is asked to call 911, the Everett Police Department Tip Line at 425-257-8450 or Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.
