Police are asking for the public's help in finding a suspect they say burglarized two homes Friday morning in the English Hill and Farm neighborhoods in unincorporated King County near Woodinville.
The first burglary occurred at about 9:15 a.m. Friday on the 15500 block of NE 144th Place in the Farm neighborhood, police said. A female resident of the home reportedly arrived home and found a male inside. He fled when he saw the resident and left in a dirty, small, white sedan driven by a female in her 20s, police said.
A second burglary was reported at 9:42 a.m. on the 14000 block of 171st Lane NE, according to police.
"We did arrive to find the burglar in the house and gave foot chase through the woods where we lost him," Woodinville Police Chief Sydney Jackson said. "We believe the two burglaries are related."
The suspect has been described as a white or light-skinned black male, about 6 feet tall, 240 lbs wearing a red zip-up hoodie and a dark baseball cap.
Anyone with information about the suspect or crimes is asked to contact Woodinville Police at (206) 296-3311.
