2nd suspect arrested in attempted robbery at Lake Stevens home

Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a second suspect in connection with the attempted robbery last week at a Lake Stevens home that ended when another suspect was shot.

The second suspect, a 32-year-old Arlington man, was booked into Snohomish County Jail this morning for investigation of first-degree assault and kidnapping, according to the sheriff’s office.

The wounded suspect, a 33-year-old man, remains in the hospital, the sheriff’s office said.

The sheriff’s office says the homeowner and a friend were in a garage in the 7000 block of 126th Drive Northeast last Tuesday evening when two men came in and attempted to rob them at gunpoint. The friend of the homeowner opened fire and wounded one of the would-be robbers, the sheriff’s office says.

The sheriff’s office said today the suspect arrested this morning said he drove three other people — two men and a woman — to the Lake Stevens home after stopping at several stores to buy gloves, zip ties and duct tape. After the shooting, the man fled the scene with the woman and one of the men in the car, leaving behind the wounded suspect.

The man who was arrested this morning is not believed to be the suspect who attempted to rob homeowner and his friend with a gun, the sheriff’s office says.

Detectives expect to make additional arrests.
