Boss allegedly firebombs employee's home, cuts his girlfriend
MARYSVILLE, Wash. -- Police are looking for the man who allegedly firebombed the house of an employee, slashed the employee's girlfriend with a box cutter, and generally wrecked up the couple's Marysville home early Friday morning.
According to the Marysville Police Department, a woman was in her bedroom in the 14500 block of 58th Drive Northeast around 3:45 a.m. when she saw her boyfriend's occasional employer running toward her open window.
The man threw a bottle into the room, and it exploded, igniting a piece of furniture, according to police.
The house's other occupants were able to put out the fire while the woman ran to the front of the house.
According to police, the man started slashing at the woman's face with a box cutter. When he realized the box cutter was closed, he opened it and cut the woman's stomach through her sweater, according to police.
At that point, the man allegedly starting throwing chopped wood and all manner of other things through the house's front window.
The woman's boyfriend, who also lives in the house, was walking home from a neighbor's house and heard the commotion.
According to police, he confronted his employer only to have him jump into a pickup truck and try to run him over.
In his attempts to run his employee over, the man smashed into a concrete lamppost and drove off, according to police.
Apparently, the employee and occasional employer had gotten into a dispute earlier, with the employer leaving a voicemail for the employee stating he was looking for him, and it wasn't going to be pretty when he found him.
