Burglar arrested last night on 25th E

From the SPD blotter:

On February 28th at approximately 2:40 a.m. officers responded to the 100 block of 25th Avenue East to investigate a prowler call.  Witnesses had called 911 to report that an unknown suspect was outside of a residence at that location.  Witnesses heard loud crashing noises and believed the suspect was trying to break into an apartment.  Responding officers located the suspect and took him into custody without incident.

Although the suspect was not successful in breaking into anyone’s apartment, he attempted entry into two units, damaging a glass door in the lower unit and a window in the upper unit.  The suspect also damaged a cable box, a phone box, and a barbecue grill that were outside the building.

The 34-year-old male suspect was booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary.

The man arrested appears to have a criminal history that includes conviction for robbery and assault in Mason County back in the mid-90’s.

  1. This is very near my own backyard. Thank you for taking initiative, looking out for your neighborhood, and for calling it in.

  2. Is this at the 100 block of 25th that’s near Yesler or the one near Denny? Both looked to be marked at 100 on the map.

  3. Thanks Joanna, I had always wondered about that, but somehow had been too lazy in the 23 years I’ve lived here to look it up. I guess it’s one of those things you think about when you’re out driving, but forget about by the time you get home.

  4. Did anyone hear gunshots near Cherry and 23rd. I was out walking my dog and I heard 5 or 6 gun shots in that direction from Garfield. I haven’t seen anything anywhere about it but I’m sure it was gun shots around 9pmish??

  5. I was driving home from work around 11:30pm and am/pm at 23rd and Cherry was blocked off with police caution tape, though I saw no other activity. Trekdiane if you heard gunshots 2 hours before it was probably the same incident, and had been more or less diffused.
