Officers Arrest Suspect In Armed Robberies, Home Invasion

Seattle police have arrested a man suspected in a series of violent armed robberies in the East Precinct, and a home invasion in Greenwood.

Detectives believe the man opened fire inside a home during a January 20th home invasion robbery at 92nd and Greenwood, and pulled a gun on several victims and threatened to shoot them during several holdups in the East Precinct over the last month.

On Sunday, patrol officers spotted the 19-year-old suspect near Mount Baker and chased after him on foot. Officers were able to catch up to him, arrest him, and book him into the King County Jail for robbery.

Officers also found a handgun not far from where they arrested the man.
