Woman assaulted in Everett WA apartment
Snohomish County sheriff's deputies say they used a K-9 unit to track a 31-year-old man after the man broke into the Everett apartment of his former girlfriend and held a knife to her stomach area.
The man is still at large.
The sheriff's office reports deputies responded to a call about 6:10 a.m. on Sunday of an assault involving a weapon.
Upon arrival at the Everett apartment, deputies were told the man apparently entered the apartment of his ex-girlfriend while she slept. Deputies believe the man possessed a key to the apartment.
The sheriff's office says the ex-girlfriend suffered some minor scratches from the knife, but didn't require any medical attention.
