“You see a gentlemen opening up the door to an apartment building he lives in and he’s followed immediately by three suspects,” explains Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “Two males and a female. They’re carrying backpacks. They’ve got sleeping gear. You’re going to get a pretty good look at their faces. What you’re not going to see is what happens inside the apartment where the victim lives. Once inside, they’re looking around and according to the victim he has a pretty expensive computer. What happens next is, they grab the suspect, they start choking him, they take tape, wrap his neck and they actually wrapped him to the point where he lost consciousness. If you were to see the victim’s photos, you’ll see an eye where it’s swollen and totally red and that’s from the blood flow into that area. They also bound him and then they take the computer and they leave and you’re going to see them actually leaving the apartment and one of them, the backpack he carried in is hanging by his hand. We think that’s the guy that probably put the laptop inside. So, it’s a robbery assault. It’s a serious case. We’re fortunate that the victim didn’t die.”
Detectives think the suspect wearing glasses and a lime green ball cap is white, in his 20's to 30's, with brown hair and a mustache.
The other male suspect has long blonde hair, wore a green military-like jacket and carried a red sleeping bag.
The female suspect is believed to be in her 20's or 30's. She wore a gray beanie cap and carried a backpack.
