WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Resident scares off burglar

Another attempted early-morning burglary, interrupted by a resident. Bobby says this happened at an apartment in the 6000 block of California SW [map]:

On Monday morning at 4:00 AM, I woke up to a loud noise and went into my living room to discover a thief climbing through the window. I yelled loudly and he ran off. He only managed to break the outside screen before I caught him. Pretty startling to wake up to someone climbing through your window.

Bobby says SPD responded quickly and found a possible suspect; we’re checking on the status of the case.

P.S. Got questions about crime/safety? A member of the Southwest Precinct Community Police Team, Officer Jon Flores, is confirmed for tonight’s Admiral Neighborhood Association meeting, 7 pm at The Sanctuary at Admiral (42nd SW/SW Lander).

    that’s right about where I keep my baseball bat. I’m glad you’re ok.

    Baseball bat, bear spray and choice of new body hole/holes.  Glad you’re OK too.

    I would’ve waited for the person to enter through the window and then beat him down. After that I will call cops but only after he is knocked out.

Sorry, comment time is over.
