A K9 named Saber like those pictured here captured one of two burglary suspects in Burien today. One is still at large, last seen driving an older red Jeep Cherokee.
UPDATE: Burglar injures Burien man, K9 captures one suspect
Sergeant Cindi West of the King County Sheriff Department just told the Highline TImes:
At about 11:20 (a.m.) today, an 80 year-old man pulled into his driveway in the 500 block of South 158th. When he got to his driveway he saw that his garage door was open with his wife's car in the drive and there was also 'an older red Jeep Cherokee'. He was confronted by a white male with a shotgun. The suspect pointed the shotgun at him and told him to 'get on the f***ing ground' or he was going to 'fu**ing'' kill him and told him that numerous times.
Apparently he wasn't moving fast enough so the suspect took the butt of the shotgun and struck him in the face, and struck him once in each knee with the shotgun. The suspect got into the Jeep Cherokee. The victim saw another suspect run from the back of his house to the front and he kept running away.
Officers arrived and set up perimeters. K9 was called. K9 tracked and located a jacket, then hat and gloves, and then found the suspect who had been running, hiding in the bushes near 509 and 162nd. That suspect has been arrested. The other suspect in the vehicle is still (not found.)
The dog, a German Shepherd, is named Saber.
A homeowner was attacked by a burglar in Burien today.
The man came back to his home in the 500 block of South 158th Street and discovered two burglars in his home.
One of the burglars was armed with a shotgun and hit the homeowner with it, officials said.
Two burglars then fled, but one was later captured by deputies on the scene. The second burglar still remains at large.
We will update.
