NORTH BEND, Wash.
The King County Sheriff's Office is investigating a home invasion near North Bend in which a woman came to the aid of her husband and fatally stabbed an intruder.
Deputies were called to the home in the 10100 block of 420 Avenue Southeast around 1:40 a.m. after receiving 911 calls in reference to a home invasion.
King County sheriff's spokeswoman Cindi West said a man was at a home where he lived with his wife, daughter and mother-in-law when his dog began barking. He went to check on his dog and found a man standing in his hallway.
Deputies said the husband and the intruder started fighting and the wife jumped in to help her husband. The wife grabbed a knife and stabbed the intruder during the struggle.

Put away the knife, pick up the phone, call 911 . . . and wait
Or pee on the intruder.
IN THE WORDS OF GOOD OLE NEAL BORTZ....DRT
AKA ‘DEAD RIGHT THERE’
Not too far away from me, a weird case indeed, but I have have enough cops say to me they would rather get shot in the belly, than a really good knife slice... So good on ya Darlin!
He’d put on 15 lbs in their weight program and be reasonable for wideout or cornerback.
Fortunate husband with good wife.
Cute girl. But she needs to ask for a Joe Biden Signature Shotgun for Christmas.
Did you stab him in the fracas?
No, your honor, I stabbed him about 3 inches above his fracas.
I love happy endings.
I walk downstairs loaded to bear...
Those only work to shoot through doors. She should ask for a Sarah Palin model.
Had to look around to find it:
Intruder killed in North Bend identified: Kenneth Edward Boonstra, 48.
Ironically as all get out, Kenneth E. Boonstra was owed about $700 from HUD.
The wife is a CrossFit trainer:
“The aim of CrossFit is to forge a broad, general and inclusive fitness. We have sought to build a program that will best prepare trainees for any physical contingency not only for the unknown, but for the unknowable. After looking at all sport and physical tasks collectively, we asked what physical skills and adaptations would most universally lend themselves to performance advantage... CrossFit itself is defined as that which optimizes fitness (constantly varied functional movements performed at relatively high intensity).”
Yep - but glad she was able to take care of the intruder. I’m near there, and the amount of daytime burglaries is VERY high - looking for empty houses. But, every once in awhile after no answer at the door, they break in to be confronted by the homeowner awakened from his nap, or a kid with headphones on, or the wife that ignored the “salesman” at the door.
This is outrageous. Knives need to be banned immediately! This is not 1789! The founding fathers never intended for everyone to be carrying a knife like Daniel Boone! And scissors too! They need to be banned! How many times have we hear the saying “Don’t run with scissors?” ban ban ban!
Thanks, Ma’am! That’s real crime prevention!
That was good for the gene pool.
This jackass invaded their home THREE times in 24 hours. The third time, she nailed him while the slime was fighting with her hubby.
Justifiable in my book.
GOOD FOR HER! Nice pic of the valley in the background. I grew up in the Snoqualmie Valley (Snoqualmie/North Bend/Fall City) proud Mt. Si High 1983 graduate here. I wonder if this pic is from the ‘Ridge’ (housing development) just above Snoqualmie Falls?
Guns have about a 35% fatality rate whereas knives are about 70%.
You were drunk???
And 48hrs later not a HINT as to the identity of the suspect.
And to add to my post about growing up in the valley, according to some friends on my FB page, he was in MY CLASS at Mt. Si. I remember the name, but I don’t remember him. Lot of my classmates are quite shocked about it. Have to say I’m really glad we moved out of the valley in 1990. For a lot of people that have stayed behind it’s become nothing but meth land. Have a friend who’s sister got caught up in that crap, and was selling her young teenage daughter for her fix! Sad stuff all around.
