Bremerton Police Arrest Armed Robbery Suspect
The Bremerton Police Department arrested a man and woman on Tuesday stemming from an alleged armed robbery.
Police arrested a 27-year-old man and a 24-year-old women Tuesday evening in the 3500 block of Marion Court in Bremerton, according to a press release from the police department.
On Aug. 19, a man was robbed on the street by a man armed with a handgun, the release states. The gunman took the victim’s credit cards and cell phone. Responding officers ascertained the suspect’s possible identity, and tracked him to a vehicle parked at a west Bremerton address, the release states. Police didn’t locate the suspect there, but a surveillance video showed a matching suspect get out of a car and drop items which matched the items taken from the victim, according to the release.
Officered were notified to be on the lookout for the suspect; after several days, they determined that the suspect had assaulted his wife and sister in Bremerton, the release states, and was being driven around by the 24-year-old woman in a Chevrolet Suburban. After the male suspect allegedly assaulted his wife, the female suspect reportedly fled in the truck, striking another car occupied by a woman and her 2-year-old daughter.
On Sept. 6, Bremerton police officers and detectives reportedly discovered that the suspect and his female companion were staying, uninvited, at a resident in the 3500 block of Marion Court. Officers and detectives surrounded the residence and took both suspects into custody, the release states.
The man was jailed on a charge of felony first-degree robbery; his bail was set at $100,000.
The woman was jailed on a charge of hit-and-run property damage.
Both suspects are expected to be charged by the Kitsap County Prosecutor today.
