Two people were arrested in Spokane Tuesday in connection with the robbery of Jake Harris, according to Everett police.
Harris, 25, of television series “Deadliest Catch” is recovering in a hospital after a severe beating and robbery over the weekend.
Jake Harris’ brother, Cornelia Marie Captain Josh Harris, shared details of his brother’s attack in two live videos on the official Facebook page for Deadliest Catch - F/V Cornelia Marie.
Josh said a man and a woman from Spokane were the suspects that Jake had identified and that the “word on the street” is that they had done such attacks before in which the victims were beaten and their money was stolen. He showed their pictures and named them in one of the two videos posted.
During their robbery investigation, detectives worked with Jake Harris to identify the suspects.
With the help of the Spokane Police Department, two suspects were arrested Tuesday evening in Spokane.
Everett detectives will take custody of the two and return them to Everett where they will be booked into the Snohomish County Jail on probable cause charges for robbery. It is not know if they will face assault charges as well.
Police have not named the two suspect at this point as the investigation is ongoing. KIRO 7 News is not yet showing the video or pictures containing their names and photos.
Everett police said they had not heard of any similar incidents. Police say the Harris family is cooperating with the investigation.
Harris was listed in satisfactory condition on Monday.
