Marysville police report a home Invasion robbery

MARYSVILLE - Marysville police are seeking the public’s help identifying the perpetrators in a home invasion robbery early Friday morning, a crime that ended when the bound-up teenager alone in the house escaped and was able to call police.

The robbery occurred about 3 a.m. when two unidentified males forcefully entered a residence in the 7100 block of 70th Avenue NE in Marysville. The 15-year-old male victim was home asleep when he was awakened by noises downstairs, according to Cmdr, Ralph Krusey of the Marysville Police Department. The two males threatened the teen with a handgun, bound him and put him in a separate room while the suspects searched the house.

The victim managed to escape, then run to a neighbor’s house and call police, Krusey said. The suspects fled the scene before officers arrived.

The robbery does not appear to be a random incident, Krusey said, both suspects were described as Caucasian, wearing ski masks, with medium builds and about 5’10” tall.

Marysville Police Detectives are continuing to investigate this incident. Anyone having information regarding this incident or the suspects should contact Detective Charles Smith at 360-363-8302.
