Man threatens residents at their home with knife

A stranger attempted to attack a group of people at their Bremerton home Aug. 29. No one was injured.

An officer was dispatched at 7:33 p.m. to a house on Cambrian Avenue for a reported assault.

The occupants, a 42-year-old man, 34-year-old woman, and 54-year-old woman, said that a large man in his late 20s came to their house in a silver Ford Taurus.

Two other men remained in the vehicle and the large man came to the door and said they needed to get out because they were late on paying their rent.

The 34-year-old woman tried to close the door but the suspect forced his way in saying his name was “Big Mike” and he “doesn’t play.”

Once inside, he took out a six to eight-inch pocket knife and tried to stab the 42-year-old man several times.

The suspect also pointed the knife at the women once he saw that the 34-year-old was calling 9-1-1.

Then he picked up a large walking stick and broke it into three pieces. He left heading south on Wycoff Avenue toward Sixth Street.

All three victims told the officer that they had never seen the man before.

A check of the area turned up negative for the suspect. The officer advised them to call 9-1-1 if the vehicle or the man returned.
