View Larger Map
About 5:30 a.m. this morning a woman in our neighborhood discovered a man in her house. She confronted him and he responded “I’m in the wrong house!” and left.
The woman called police and officers found the man about a block and a half from the residence.
As the suspect was being detained, officers found some of the victims property in the man's possession. She was later able to positively identify him as the man she saw in her house.
The 48 year old man was arrested and booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary. North Precinct Burglary detectives responded to the scene and processed the scene as part of their investigation.
This is another in a string of recent burglaries of North Seattle homes that are occupied at the time of the burglary. Recently officers arrested a teenager with a long history of crime in connection with some of the occupied burglaries.
