Anchor Pub former owner charged in sex assault cases
On Jan. 14, Christian Sayre, who owned the Anchor Pub on west Hewitt Avenue, was arrested and charged with 10 counts of sexual assault related crimes.
He was originally arrested in October 2021 for several sexual assaults that are alleged to have occurred over the past several years. Everett Police say that in most of these incidents, male and female victims reported going to the Anchor Pub, having a few drinks, and then blacking out. Upon waking up, the victims believed they had been sexually assaulted.
Everett Police say that since the original arrest, Sayre was released on bail while awaiting charges to be filed. Everett Police detectives continued to work the case and more victims, both men and women, have come forward with reports of similar events. 
Based on information gathered through this ongoing investigation, the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office charged Sayre with two counts of rape in the second degree and eight counts of indecent liberties and issued a warrant for his arrest.
