Armed Men Tie Up, Rob Resident At North Seattle Home

Two armed men forced their way inside a North Seattle home last week, tied up a resident, and made off with thousands of dollars worth of electronics, according to a police report.

The victim was home alone around 7:30pm on October 22nd when two suspects armed with handguns forced their way into the victim’s home at 1st NW and NW 132nd, bound his legs with a dog leash, tied his hands with a power cord, and covered his face with a white t-shirt.

The suspects stole the resident’s 47″ Samsung flat screen TV,  a DVD player, two computers, about 50 DVDs, a Macbook, an external hard drive, and the victim’s wallet, passport, and cell phone., before they ran out of the house and drove off.

The suspects are described as a white male, 6″, 200 pounds, with blond curly hair, wearing a gray sweatshirt, and carrying a handgun with a laser sight; and a Hispanic male, 5’8, with black hair, wearing a red shirt, and also armed with a handgun with a laser sight.

The victim was not injured in the incident, and was able to free himself. He then ran to a neighbor’s house and called 911.

While at the neighbor’s house, the victim used an online service to track his cellphone to 143rd and Linden Ave.

Police searched the area and stopped two men, but the victim was not able to positively identify them as the suspects. Officers weren’t able to find the victim’s phone.
