EVERETT, Wash. — A man who was recently released from prison as a result of the coronavirus is suspected of assaulting a woman Friday on the Interurban Trail in Everett. Now the man is back behind bars.
It happened at about 7:15 p.m. in the 11200 block of the trail. The man allegedly came from behind and choked the woman. She was able to get free, and he ran off.
Investigators said 33-year-old Cory Matthew told them he had been using meth for the past two weeks and had not slept in seven days.
Matthews was released May 2 as part of the Department of Corrections Rapid Reentry program to reduce the spread of the coronavirus in the prison system.
