Two arrested in North Seattle home invasion


SEATTLE - Police are still sorting out the details after a victim in a home invasion was able to escape when his friend used a stun gun on an intruder.

A man called 911 Friday morning whispering that two gunmen had burst into his North Seattle home and held him at gunpoint.

The victim said the armed men entered his house in the 12500 block of Seventh Avenue Northwest but he was able to escape after a friend, who was also in the home, used a stun gun on one of the gunmen.

The caller said he then ran and hid under the porch of a nearby home and called 911.

Officers arrived, arrested two men in the yard of the victim’s home and called robbery detectives to investigate.

Police initially took a third man into custody at the scene, but said he is not believed to be involved in the crime and was released.

Police said the investigation remains very convoluted, and detectives are trying sort out whether the incident was a robbery attempt or some other type of confrontation.

Police are not looking for any additional suspects in the case.
