Two people were arrested in Spokane last week in connection with the robbery of Harris, according to Everett police.
On the night of the attack, Everett officers were called to the 700 block of Southeast Highway 526 for a report of an injured man on the side of the highway.
Arriving officers found Harris with neck and head injuries. He told officers he had been at the Quil Ceda Creek Casino in Marysville, where he had met up with a man, the man's girlfriend and another woman he had befriended the day before.
The man and his girlfriend agreed to give Harris a ride home, and they drove him into Everett.
The victim told police that after making a stop, the man sat behind him and started to attack him as they drove.
He blacked out and woke up on the side of the highway with his wallet and $2,400 cash missing.
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 in which the victims were beaten and their money was stolen. In one of the two videos he posted, Josh showed pictures of the man and woman and named them.
During their robbery investigation, detectives worked with Jake Harris to identify the suspects.
