Burglar breaks in to White Center home, sleeps in child's bed
King County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a suspect that attempted to break into three homes and did break into a fourth and was then discovered in a White Center family's home, sleeping in a child's bed.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man with dark-colored dreadlocks, wearing a black shirt and black pants. He appeared to be wearing a black watch or bracelet on his right wrist. He was possibly barefoot at the time of the break-in.
Westside Seattle news partner Q13 Fox News reports that "Claudia Rojas said her kids are young so they sleep with her. When she woke up, she noticed that her bedroom door had been opened and her son’s door was closed. When she opened it, she says the stranger inside became angry and violent.
"I started walking backwards because I didn’t know what to do at the moment because I didn’t know if he had any weapons with him. He started yelling at me, getting closer to me and I was holding my daughter, so scared, and he was trying to get out of the house when he just pushed me to the wall with my son," said Rojas.
The suspect left when he saw that she was on the phone with 911. Now, she says her daughter is too terrified to go anywhere alone."
Q13 reported that "deputies responded but were unable to locate the suspect. Detectives believe he is the same man seen on surveillance video at about 1:20 a.m. smashing the glass to her neighbor’s back door on 4th Place SW. The homeowner, who wasn't there, had been alerted to the break-in by his RING camera. Two other neighbors also reported attempted break-ins that night. One said the male entered his backyard and tried his doors and windows. Another stated that he spotted the suspect in his backyard before he fled."
