In November 2021, Special Assault Unit detectives served a search warrant on the suspect’s house and the Anchor Pub. The search recovered evidence that linked the owner to numerous other sexual assaults both in Everett and in Washington County, Oregon. Based on information gathered through this ongoing investigation, the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office charged the owner with 10 counts of rape in the second degree and issued a warrant for his arrest.

Everett Police had evidence for an additional nine counts of sex crimes, but those were not able to be charged due to the statute of limitations expiring or some cases needing additional information.
