Burn baby, burn

A sheriff’s deputy went to a home on Olympic Avenue in Bremerton at 11 p.m. Oct. 27 for a report of an assault.

The victim, a 17-year-old male, said he was assaulted by a 35-year-old Bremerton man at a residence in the 3600 block of McCall Boulevard in Navy Yard City.

The teen said he went there earlier in the evening with his mother. They planned to visit the suspect’s girlfriend and the two women borrowed the suspect’s truck with his permission. The teen stayed with the suspect while the women took the truck.

The teen said the suspect became increasingly intoxicated and angry while the truck was gone, which was about four hours. He met his mother and the suspect’s girlfriend at a store and the teen and his mother went to return the truck.

When they got to the residence, they discovered the front of the teen’s mother’s minivan had been doused with gasoline. The man started throwing things at the woman and teen and blocked the door so they could not escape. The teen punched the man several times in the head and he and the woman ran out the door to the minivan.

He was arrested and booked into jail for fourth-degree assault and outstanding warrants. His bail is set at $25,000.
