On Thursday, the first suspect, Blessing T. Gainey, was arrested without incident in the city of Burien. Gainey is being held on an outstanding and unrelated city of Kirkland warrant.

On Oct. 12, two suspects forced entry into the home in the 13700 block of NE 133rd Street and attacked a 19-year-old man as he slept. The suspects reportedly dragged the man from his bed into another part of the home where they then attacked him, cutting him multiple times.

The victim did not know the suspects.

    Democrat liberals will give these guys three years in prison and take any guns away from the homeowner. They want a Detroit and Chicagi style of a city.
