Vehicles from the Everett Police Department and Snohomish County Sheriff were outside of the building for several hours.

Everett Police and the Region One SWAT Team were able to successfully resolve a situation involving a person who barricaded themself in an apartment for several hours at a supportive housing facility in the 3300 block of Lombard Tuesday afternoon.

Police were called to the building after reports that a tenant on the fifth floor threatened multiple residents with a large knife. After the attack on the residents the person was reportedly seen shouting and waving the knife out of their apartment window and then began barricading themself behind the unit’s front door.

Officers were able to evacuate the fifth floor and spent hours trying to get the situation calmed down and have the person come out of the apartment. The person remained agitated and threatened officers.

Officers obtained a court’s permission to arrest the person for multiple counts of assault and felony harassment for the actions with the knife. Just before 5 PM they served a search warrant and breached the door gaining access to the apartment. A taser was used to take the person into custody.

The person was transported to an Everett hospital for an evaluation and is expected to be booked in the Snohomish County Jail for multiple felonies. No residents or officers were hurt in the incident. The building has 82 apartments with resources to help people experiencing mental health issues as well as assist those in need of supportive housing and services.
