Registered sex offender who held 4-year-old behind barricade held on $500K bail

MARYSVILLE — A convicted sex offender was charged with two counts of domestic violence — one for unlawful imprisonment with a weapon other than a firearm, and the other for fourth degree assault — by the Snohomish County Prosecutor's Office on Feb. 1, after his Jan. 14 arrest for allegedly punching his girlfriend in the face and then barricading himself in the woman's apartment in Marysville, with a knife and her 4-year-old daughter, for 13 hours before SWAT members broke through the door.

Jason Tryon — a 33-year-old Level 3 sex offender who was convicted of the second degree rape of a child in 2005 and the failure to register as an offender in 2011 — was jailed on $500,000 bail in Snohomish County Superior Court on Feb. 4, after pleading not guilty to the two felony charges.
