LYNNWOOD, Wash. – On Thursday, the Region 1 SWAT Team responded to a domestic violence incident in the 20700 block of Crawford Road at approximately 5:15 p.m. An adult male at the residence was allegedly intoxicated, armed with a gun and a knife, and making threats to harm his family and burn their house down.

When deputies responded, they created a plan and safely extracted the family member who was still inside the residence. 

The suspect retreated to a fifth-wheel trailer behind the residence, barricaded himself inside and refused to surrender. Shortly after, the Region 1 SWAT team responded to the scene. After more than 7 hours, the suspect finally exited the trailer and was taken into custody. There were no injuries to the suspect or the deputies. 

A hunting style knife, body armor, a pellet gun, and a .22 cal. lever action rifle were located and seized from the trailer and booked into evidence. 

The suspect, a 44 year-old Lynnwood man, was booked into the Snohomish County jail for 1st degree assault - domestic violence and felony harassment.
