KCSO looking for stabbing suspect

Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in searching for a 62-year-old transient man.

Ivan W. Haynes, Jr. is wanted for questioning in connection with an assault that occurred at the Camelot Mobile Home park early Saturday morning.

He reportedly lives in a motor home in the East Bremerton area. Deputies suspect he has shaved his beard and cut his hair. Deputies followed up an investigation that a domestic assault occurred at the park on Friday night. During the initial, unrelated investigation, one subject was arrested and booked into county jail for domestic violence assault.

When deputies arrived, a female guest “at the same residence had just suffered a stabbing injury,” according to a KCSO press release. The victim, 49, is also a transient who frequents the E. Bremerton area. She was transported to Harrison Hospital in Bremerton for treatment of non life-threatening injures. According to the press release, Haynes has been identified as the suspect of the assault, but fled from his motor home.

Haynes initially was on scene during the investigation, but he fled prior to law enforcement arrival due to outstanding arrest warrants. Upon returning, he got into an altercation with the 49-year-old woman before leaving again in a white 1983 Itasca motor home, license plate number ATK-0330. Haynes location is still unknown.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call 911. Those with information may contact Detective Nicole Menge at 360-337-7117.
