The Morning Blotter: Detectives Arrest Suspect In Ballard Home Invasion

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee December 16, 2010

Seattle police are investigating a home invasion in Ballard after a group of masked men attacked a woman and her grandson in their home last week.

Around 9:30pm on December 8th, a group of three men knocked on the front door of a home on 103rd and 8th Ave NW, according to a police report.

The woman opened her door, and the suspects—two of whom were armed with handguns—pushed their way into the home. The suspects then forced the woman onto the ground.

When the woman's grandson confronted the suspects, they attacked him, punching him in the face several times. The suspects then fled the home, where they may have met up with two other men, the report says.

According to the report, only two of the three suspects wore masks during the robbery, and the grandson recognized one of the men.

The grandson then gave police the suspect's address, and robbery detectives were dispatched to contact the suspect.

Detectives knocked on the front door of the home and eventually met with the suspect's mother, who called her son and told him to come home.

Police arrested the man and booked him into the King County Jail.

The report does not indicate whether anything was taken during the robbery.

We'll see if we can track down any more info on this today.
