Terrace woman hospitalized after assault by burglar inside neighbor’s residence


A 32-year-old Mountlake Terrace woman is in critical condition at Harborview after responding to a disturbance at her neighbor’s house Monday.

The call came in at 2:12 p.m. on April 16. Mountlake Terrace police officers responded to a disturbance in the 22400 block of 59th Place West, where a 29-year-old Arlington resident unknown to the residents forced his way into the residence.

A neighbor responded to the residence to investigate. The suspect confronted her inside and assaulted her, according to Mountlake Terrace police.

“Officers apprehended the suspect and booked him at the Snohomish County Jail for burglary and assault,”¬†Cmdr. Mike Haynes said in a press release. “The victim was transported to Harborview Medical Center where she is currently in critical condition.”

Correction: A previous version of this story indicated the incident was in the 24200 block of 59th Place West, as was stated in a press release. A correction has been issued by the Mountlake Terrace Police Department to show it was in the 22400 block.


  1. Amazing! There was a similar incident at about the same time of the same day in the 22400 block of 59th Pl. W.! Or did the numbers somehow get transposed?

    We had quite a large police presence there, and saw two men in handcuffs, and one person taken away in the aid car.

    Sad….this kind of thing used to never happen in our town.

    • The information initially came to us that way from police but we confirmed it was an error and have corrected it.

  2. That’s terrible! I hope that she has the support of family and friends? Let us know how we can show support in her coping and recovery.
