• Kent officers searching for suspect in home invasion


    KENT, Wash. - Kent police released a sketch Thursday of a suspect in a strange home invasion on Thanksgiving morning.

    Police said an intruder was armed with a gun when he barged into a home at the Kent Summit Apartments at 10:50 a.m.

    The victims said the man forced his way into the unit and pointed a blue semi-automatic handgun at them. They said he spoke in a language other than English and then fled.  Nothing was stolen.

    The man is described as 5 feet 10 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a medium build and a light complexion. He is possibly Asian, Hispanic or black and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

    "With the information we have gathered, we believe that the victims in this case were not the intended targets, but more likely than not, the subject targeted the wrong residence," said Kent Detective Melanie Frazier.

    Investigators have been unable to identify the man and are now asking for the public's help.

    Anyone with information about the incident or any similar case is asked to call the Kent Police Department tip line at 253-856-5808.
