Detectives Arrest Second Suspect Connected to South Seattle Robbery Investigation

A second suspect wanted in connection with a March 6th home invasion robbery where a woman was shot, was arrested last night in South Seattle.

At around 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a burglary in the 5900 block of 28th Avenue South. Three suspects had broken into the residence and attempted to kick in the bedroom door where the occupants were hiding but were unsuccessful.  The suspects did steal the homeowner’s car after taking the keys from the kitchen counter. Several minutes later and within a mile of the house a witness called 911 after observing the suspects acting suspiciously near a silver Honda.  Officers determined that that was most likely the victim’s car and detained the three suspects.  A witness to the residential burglary positively identified the three suspects.  Detectives responded to the scene to interview the suspects.  During the interviews, one of the suspects admitted to being present at the home invasion robbery last month.  Detectives had been searching for this suspect in connection with the robbery that occurred March 15th.  The 17-year-old male suspect was interviewed by detectives and later booked into the King County Youth Services Center for robbery, burglary, assault, auto theft and several outstanding warrants.  The first suspect in this case was arrested by detectives on March 30th.

The other two juvenile suspects, one male and one female, were booked into YSC for burglary and auto theft.

Detectives will continue to follow up on this investigation.
