Seattle police arrested a man this morning for allegedly breaking into a Beacon Hill woman’s home and stealing several items while she slept.
The woman woke up and dialed 911 to report that a man dressed all in black had been standing over her in her room. The woman said she pushed the man and he ran out of the home, police spokesman Patrick Michaud wrote in a news release.
The woman, who was not hurt, told officers that her cellphone and some camera equipment were stolen from her home in the 5000 block of 29th Avenue South.
Michaud wrote in the news release that officers used the GPS locator on the phone to track it to a home in the 4900 block of Beacon Avenue South. Police called the phone but could not hear it ringing inside. Officers found the photo equipment on the porch of that same home.
Michaud said officers requested a search warrant and arrested the man inside the home for investigation of burglary.
