Burglary in South Seattle, suspect, others arrested

On February 5th, at approximately 11:48 PM, a woman called 911 to report that an unknown, very large male had just entered her residence in the 2800 Block of 19th Avenue South. The victim was terrified and hid on the main floor with her children.  Officers arrived and cleared the residence and then began to search for the suspect.  The suspect was located on the porch of another residence in the 2800 Block of 19th Avenue South.  When officers attempted to contact him, he fled into that residence.  The house was surrounded as officers contacted the residents.  The residents were very intoxicated and hostile, denying that the suspect had entered the house.  Officers were able to enter the house and located the suspect hiding in a closet.  The suspect was taken into custody after a struggle with the officers.  In addition, two of the residents were arrested; one for assaulting an officer and the other for obstructing.  The victim positively identified the suspect as the one who had entered her home.  One officer was treated at Harborview Medical Center for his injuries.  The 25 year suspect was later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary, and the 25 year old male  and 26 year old female were booked for assault and obstructing.
