MARYSVILLE — A Redmond man who attempted a citizen's arrest in Marysville on April 15 has found himself facing a $25,000 bail.
The 27-year-old man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree assault, after officers responded to a report of him waving a gun around in the parking lot of Schucks at 1273 State Ave., which was later updated to a report of the man pointing the gun at people inside a car.
The man told responding officers that he was pointing the gun at another man, whom he claimed had stolen movies from Hollywood Video across the street. The gunman also told officers that he pulled out the gun in self-defense, claiming that he thought he was going to get run over by the car.
According to the female driver of the car occupied by the man who was accused of the theft, the gunman pointed his gun at them, started kicking and denting her car, and when she got out of the car, he pointed the gun at her and told her to get down on the ground.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
