Man arrested in connection with home invasion robbery this morning

Seattle police have arrested a man in connection with a home invasion robbery in the Georgetown neighborhood early this morning.

According to police, a man was asleep in his apartment in the 6600 Block of Corson Avenue South around 1:30 a.m. when he was awakened by a person demanding money. The suspect implied that he had a gun and threatened to shoot the victim in the head if he didn’t comply. The suspect grabbed several items from the apartment before fleeing, police said.

The victim called 911 and officers who responded saw a person matching the suspect’s description at the corner of Sixth Avenue South and South Michigan Street. The 46-year-old suspect was arrested, and police said they found the victim’s wallet and cellphone in the man’s pocket.

The victim positively identified the suspect as the man who robbed him, police said. Police believe the suspect may have entered the apartment through an unlocked front door.
