BPD arrest robbery suspect and accomplice

A 27-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were arrested Sept. 6 on the 3500 block of Marion Court in Bremerton following a lengthy investigation.

BREMERTON — A 27-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were arrested Sept. 6 on the 3500 block of Marion Court in Bremerton following a lengthy investigation.

On Aug. 19, a man was robbed on the street by another man armed with a handgun, who took the victim’s credit cards and cell phone. Responding officers determined the suspect’s possible identity, and tracked him to a vehicle parked at an address in West Bremerton. The suspect was not located, but surveillance video showed a matching suspect get out of the car and drop items, which were matched to the items taken from the victim.

Officers were notified to look for the suspect, and after several days of follow up, determined that the same suspect had assaulted his wife and her sister in our city, and was being driven around by the 24-year-old woman in a Chevrolet Suburban.

After the male suspect assaulted his wife, the female suspect fled in the truck, striking another car in which there was a woman and her two-year-old daughter.

On the evening of Sept. 6, officers and detectives from the Bremerton Police Department determined that the suspect and his female companion were staying uninvited at a residence on the 3500 block of Marion Court. Officers and detectives surrounded the residence and took both into custody.

The man was jailed on felony robbery in the first degree with $100,000 bail; the woman was jailed on hit-and-run property damage charges.

“An armed robbery on the street is very unusual, very concerning, and this case was a high priority,” said Bremerton Police Chief Steve Strachan. “We needed to get this violent and dangerous suspect off the streets as quickly as possible.”

Chief Strachan credited the teamwork of officers and detectives.
