Aaron David Pearl charged in first degree robbery in unprovoked assault in Ballard; He remains in jail on $100,000 bail
The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has filed a first-degree robbery charge against Aaron David Pearl, a man accused of an unprovoked attack on a stranger in Ballard.
The victim was beaten until he was semi-conscious. His wallet and keys were stolen. The victim’s injuries were so severe he could not recall the incident, even though he called 911.
The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office asked a judge to hold the defendant in jail on $100,000 for the unprovoked attack. A judge agreed. He remains in jail.
Mr. Pearl’s arraignment, where he’s expected to enter a plea, is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Jan. 25 in room E1201A of the King County Courthouse.
This is the first case involving Mr. Pearl that has been referred to the King County Prosecutor's office since 2018, the year they charged a bomb threat case that led to a felony conviction. Every case involving Mr. Pearl that has been referred to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has led to criminal charges.
