Christian Sayre, longtime owner of The Anchor Pub, has been charged with 10 counts of sex offenses.

EVERETT — The longtime owner of a prominent Everett bar was arrested on Friday for the second time in several months on allegations of sexual assault.

Christian Sayre, 35, is now charged with 10 counts of sex offenses.

New indictments say Everett police have opened 20 investigations into Sayre, 35, who took ownership of The Anchor Pub in 2014.

He used his position as a bar owner to commit his crimes, the indictment papers say. The Everett man secretly mixed drugs into drinks he mixed, patrons claimed.

An arrest warrant was issued for Sayre on Friday, and Everett police arrested the former bar owner at his home on Nassau Street, about a block from the pub, that evening.

Sayre was sent to the Snohomish County Jail on $1 million bail.

Law enforcement was alerted in 2017 to reports that Sayre had sexually assaulted and drugged Gönner, police reports said.
