Violent felon with 18 convictions accused of brutal ‘Boys and Girls Club’ beating
SEATTLE — A 33-year-old man is accused of a shocking domestic violence attack in Seattle out in the open during a basketball game at a Boys and Girls Club.
High-violent offender Marcel Jones is already convicted of several domestic violence crimes.
“A conversation takes place whether or not he should attend a birthday party,” said Ret. Det. Myrle Carner. “He refuses to talk to her. She then leaves, goes a little ways away, and all of a sudden bam — she’s getting hit from behind. She gets hit numerous times with a closed fist, knocks her to the ground. And at that point, people try to intervene with no luck.”
Detectives say Jones took off, and hasn’t been seen since. He’s 33-years-old and inked with several tattoos including that teardrop under his right eye.
Jones has 18 criminal convictions — and a thing for guns — even shooting himself in the hand once, where the bullet blasted through an apartment wall barely missing the neighbor next door.
Washington’s Most Wanted viewers helped catch Jones a year ago when we featured him for breaking probation with the Department of Corrections in King County.
