ARLINGTON — A 25-year-old Stanwood man was arrested for his involvement in what authorities are calling a home invasion robbery in Arlington.
Arlington police arrested the man on Thursday, Sept. 2 for his alleged role in the robbery, which took place at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 30 in the 400 block of East Gilman Avenue.
City of Arlington spokeswoman Kristin Banfield said that the victims reported two adult men forced their way into the residence and held them at gun point.
The suspects demanded valuables and cash while they threatened to kill the victims, Banfield said. Four individuals were in the home at the time of the home invasion, including a young child.
The suspects then fled the home on foot carrying stolen items from within the home, she said.
Arlington Police were not able to locate the suspects, but several of the victims were able to identify one of the suspects.
That suspect was booked into Snohomish County Jail for investigation of first degree burglary and first degree robbery.
The Stanwood resident has past arrests for assault, burglary, reckless driving and eluding.
Authorities are still searching for the second suspect in the case. Residents are encouraged to contact the police department at 360-403-3400 with any information.
