Seattle Crime has the story of a scary home invasion robbery that happened Monday night:
The victim told police he’d been been sitting in his upstairs bedroom of his home on 20th and Alder around 7:00pm on September 20th, when he heard a noise behind him and turned around to see a man walking into his room.
The suspect had one hand behind his back “as if he were concealing something,” a police report says, and told the victim to hand over his laptop and camera, which were sitting on a desk.
The suspect told the victim he would shoot him if he did not cooperate, and after taking the camera and laptop, ordered the victim to head downstairs. It does not appear that the suspect ever actually displayed a weapon, but the report is categorized in SPD’s system as a robbery with a gun.
The suspect repeatedly told the victim he would kill him, as he led the victim through the house, stealing several other laptops which belonged to the victim’s roommates, who were not home at the time of the incident.
Officers and a K9 unit searched the area, but did not find the suspect. No suspect description was given in the police report.
