EVERETT, Wash., (KOMO) - Authorities have released the 911 call that alerted Everett police to the robbery of Jake Harris, a cast member of "Deadliest Catch."

He was found on the side of a highway Saturday night.

"There's a guy out here on the ground," the woman who called 911 said. "He's bleeding."

She relayed to dispatchers that Harris told her that he was in a black Range Rover with three people who stole his wallet and beat him.

"He said some guys beat him up and threw him out of the car," she told the dispatcher. "It looks like there was a struggle. I mean, there's crap everywhere."

Everett police say Harris was found about 8 p.m. Saturday on the shoulder of state Route 526.

Harris told officers that he had been at the Quil Ceda Creek Casino in Marysville, got a ride with some people, then got into an altercation and was robbed.

Harris declined to go the hospital and also didn't want to file a police report. Officers took him home, and people there later took him to a hospital. He was in satisfactory condition on Monday.

But as leads came in and social media began discussing what happened, officers took a report and did a preliminary investigation. On Monday, detectives were talking to Harris and his family and taking leads provided by the public.

Police haven't released suspect information and are trying to get a full picture of what happened from Harris.
