Early last Wednesday, Everett firefighters and police responded to an apartment fire in the 3000 block of Lombard Avenue and reports that a man armed with knives had been spotted in the area. Witnesses told investigators the man had kicked in the door of a residence and threatened a tenant with a knife, according to Everett police Sgt. Cheryl Braley. He’d reportedly set fire to an outbuilding and an adjacent garage, and was in the process of igniting a fire in that home, Braley said, when firefighters and police arrived and he ran off.

About 90 minutes later, Everett police spotted Green approximately 10 blocks away. As officers cornered him, they saw he was carrying two large kitchen knives, Braley said. Green allegedly resisted arrest, but officers chased him down after he ran into the side of a marked patrol car. Once they caught up to him, he reportedly asked police to kill him.

No one was hurt in the fires, but the officers involved in the arrest suffered minor injuries.
