Can You Help Police Find Suspect In Home Invasion Robbery?

SPD gang and robbery detectives are hoping you can help them track down a man who pistol-whipped and robbed a woman in her Seattle home late last month.

Detectives believe Jose Betancourth, 30, and another man broke into their victim’s home on December 21st, pistol-whipped her, and then forced her to drive with them to another location.

Police arrested one suspect in the case, but believe Betancourth may still be hiding out in Seattle or the Yakima area. Betancourt is described as being 6’2, 235 lbs, and has multiple tattoos (pictured below). If you have any information about his current location, please contact detectives at (206) 684-5535 or via 911.
