Things got medieval last Friday after Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies say a 40-year-old Bremerton man threatened another man with a crossbow.

According to a statement of probable cause from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, Jared A. Yazzie exited a white Chevy Suburban and began threatening a man with the weapon by pointing it in the victim’s face. The victim also noted that the bowstring on the crossbow was pulled back in an armed position and he noticed a feather-like material at the top of the crossbow indicating that it appeared an arrow had been loaded.

Deputies allege that Yazzie threatened to do the man harm if he did not return his property within 24 hours. Yazzie then returned the crossbow to the vehicle and came back with a “shank type object” before again threatening the victim, deputies say.

Yazzie was later located and arrested without incident, a crossbow was recovered from his white Chevy Suburban. On Monday, March 25, Yazzie was being held on $50,000 bail and facing a charge of assault in the second degree.
