Police: Man assaults 3 people on boat

Kitsap County Superior Court cases

$150,000 bail

A 42-year-old Bremerton man was in Kitsap County Superior Court Feb. 14 with bail set at $150,000.

He is charged with second-degree robbery, violation of court orders, interfering with reporting domestic violence and reckless endangerment. He faces 13 years in prison and $35,000 in fines.

Court papers say: Bremerton police responded Feb. 13 at 8:42 p.m. to the 100 block of Washington Beach. The previous day officers had taken a report of an assault of three people on the boat. On the 13th, the suspect reportedly took his son and ran off the boat. The suspect was located with the son on the side of Highway 3 after a call was received from a passing motorist.

The suspect refused officer commands to get on the ground and ignored public address speaker announcements informing him that he was under arrest. The highway was shut down, the suspect was taken into custody and the son was taken to his mother.

Woman assaulted

A 26-year-old Grapeview man was in Superior Court Feb. 14 on charges of second-degree and fourth-degree assault.

He faces 11 years in prison and $21,000 in fines.

Court papers say: Bremerton police responded to the 300 block of S. Lafayette Ave. in Bremerton at 10:29 a.m. Feb. 13.

A woman was in a car when an ex-boyfriend arrived and punched the windshield and cracked it on the passenger side. She was borrowing the car so she unlocked the doors. The suspect grabbed her hair and forced her head onto the steering wheel. The victim said a few days before the suspect showed up in the early morning hours at her apartment, and he dragged her by the hair to the ground and kicked her in the ribs.

The victim said he had threatened to kill her in the past and often put his hands around her neck. On another night he held two women at gunpoint—it ended up being a BB gun—while he used fentanyl.

The suspect had taken her phone, which had a tracking device on it, so police were able to locate him. They set up containment then sent in a canine. The suspect escaped but was tracked down soon after and taken into custody.

Poulsbo theft

Bail was set at $75,000 for a 37-year-old Orting man charged with second-degree theft in Superior Court Feb. 15.

He faces five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Court papers say Poulsbo police at 3:50 a.m. responded Feb. 14 to the 22100 block of Jameson Avenue NW. An officer saw a truck leaving a new home construction site. The officer was aware of materials being stolen there about a month before. He recalled that stolen wood had green paint on it for property identification.

The officer drove by the truck and saw wood with green paint on it. He followed it and found duct tape was placed over the license plate. The suspect said he bought the wood from a store in Gig Harbor to do construction work, but he did not have a receipt. The officer looked in the truck cab and saw a gun on the floor loaded with gold-colored shells. The suspect and his passenger were both felons and therefore not allowed to have a gun. The passenger has 14 felony convictions.

The general contractor confirmed the items were taken from his site. There was $1,500 worth of plywood and $300 in windows.

Car theft

A 61-year-old Poulsbo man was in Superior Court Feb. 16 charged with taking a motor vehicle in the second degree.

Bail was $50,000. He faces five years in prison and $10,000 in fines.

Court papers say a Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy talked to a woman who had a friend staying at her house to fix things. He took her vehicle and did not return. The woman was later jailed on another charge. She asked another friend to get the car back for her. Twice he tried but the suspect didn’t comply.

When she got out of jail she found the car and wielding a baseball bat forcefully removed him from it.
