West Seattle Crime Watch followup: Break-in suspect behind bars

You might remember a case from July that was particularly alarming because of what had happened days earlier: As covered here, a man broke into a Morgan Junction apartment early one morning and fled when its occupant screamed; this happened while police were still seeking the South Park murder suspect (who was arrested days later). The day after the break-in, police staked out another building a few blocks south of the crime scene, hoping to catch the suspect (here’s our story on that). Lt. Steve Paulsen from the Southwest Precinct promised to let us know when he was finally in custody – and we just got that news: He says the suspect was arrested yesterday in the Skyway area, on a $150,000 warrant for burglary. ADDED 11:45 PM: KCPQ has a report with photos of the suspect, Marcel Matthews. (We checked the jail register; he’s still in.)
