CASE UPDATE: A felony arrest warrant for Robbery 1 has been issued for Mason Archer-Barrett, 27, of Sequim in relation to this incident. Anyone with information as to Archer-Barret's whereabouts is asked to call dispatch at 360-452-4545 to speak to an Officer.
EDIT: Archer-Barrett was released from Harborview Hospital where he was receiving medical attention following this incident. Due to HIPAA restrictions, law enforcement was only able to access limited information as far as his medical care and status at Harborview therefore we were not notified upon his release. It is not uncommon in these situations for an arrest warrant to be issued for the subject to be taken into custody at a later time.
Michelle Madona Osborn, age 37, of Port Angeles has also been charged as an Accomplice to Attempted Robbery 1. She remains in custody in the Clallam County Jail.
