Everett bar owner arrested in rape investigation

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — The owner of an Everett bar has been arrested for investigation of rape involving bar customers. The Daily Herald reports Christian Sayre was arrested Friday and booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of two counts of rape and one count of indecent liberties. He has owned The Anchor Pub since 2014. Everett police say over the past several years, women and men have reported being sexually assaulted by the bar owner. Police say victims reported that “they only had a few drinks but had no recollection of what occurred afterward. … Upon waking up, the victims believed they had been sexually assaulted.” It wasn’t immediately known if Sayre has a lawyer to comment.
