Police: Intruders put gun to man's head, ransack his apartment

SEATTLE -- A U-District resident is afraid for his safety after a number of men reportedly broke into his house Monday afternoon, put a gun to his head and threatened to kill him if he called police.

According to the Seattle Police Department's report for the incident, the victim was in his apartment in the 5200 block of 22nd Avenue Northeast around 2 p.m. when he heard at knock at the door.

He later told police he couldn't see out his peephole, but he opened the door anyway.

The victim was immediately thrown to the ground, and a gun was placed against his head, according to the report. He told police he thinks there were two intruders, but he was thrown to the ground so fast he didn't get a good look.

According to the report, one of the intruders asked where a man was, but the victim didn't recognize the name. The intruder also reportedly asked about a woman.

The intruders then ransacked the victim's apartment, according to the report.

The victim told police he has no idea why anyone would have done this to him.

According to the report, the victim waited a day to report the incident to police and seemed edgy and uncomfortable while speaking with them.

The victim said he waited to report the crime because the intruders threatened to kill him if he did, and he was very shaken up.
