Police arrest man for 3rd time in past week

SEATTLE -- A 28-year-old man has apparently been keeping the Seattle Police Department busy after he was arrested for the third time in the past week Tuesday, this time after allegedly entering a woman's apartment while she was sleeping.

According to police, the Queen Anne resident was sleeping in her apartment in the 1300 block of Second Avenue West around 4:45 a.m. when she heard a noise.

She got up to find a stranger talking in her living room, apparently having entered through the unlocked front door, according to police.  The woman pushed the man out the door and called 911.

By the time officers arrived, the man was gone. But, they stayed in the area hoping to catch him.

That means they were nearby when a second 911 call came in around 6:23 a.m. The caller reported spotting a suspicious man going through neighbors' yards and looking in windows in the 1400 block of First Avenue North.

Officers arrived and found the man on a third-floor balcony in that block, according to police. He was arrested and booked into King County Jail for burglary.

The same man was booked into King County Jail for investigation of criminal trespassing on March 6 and again on March 7.
