EVERETT — Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies acting on a tip have arrested a 35-year-old Everett man in connection with a home burglary in which a 70-year-old woman was tied to a toilet.

Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said the woman interrupted the Tuesday afternoon burglary, leading the intruder to tie her up. The woman was able to free herself after about an hour and then called 911. She was not seriously injured and declined aid.

The intruder stole the woman’s 2011 silver Ford Escape.

Deputies said the man was arrested for investigation of burglary, robbery and unlawful imprisonment.
