SHORELINE, Wash. – Around 11:30 a.m., deputies with the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force (VOTF) arrested a 49 year-old male in Shoreline wanted for seven counts of felony first-degree child sexual assault and promoting child abuse. The suspect is a convicted sex offender who has been in Washington and has failed to register with law enforcement in our state. The 49 year-old has previous ties to the Snohomish County area, but his felony warrants are out of Maui, Hawaii. In June, authorities in Maui requested assistance from the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force to locate the suspect. Earlier today, deputies located the 49 year-old man at a construction site in Shoreline. He was taken in custody without incident and booked into the Snohomish County Jail where he awaits extradition to Hawaii to face his charges.
