A burglary report was called in just after midnight from near 26th Avenue and East Pine Street, according to Seattle police reports. A woman tole a 911 operator that her ex-boyfriend was coming through her bathroom window and the operator yelled at someone to get off her bed before the call was disconnected.
The woman told arriving officers that her ex went to the basement. There, officers found the man inside a crawlspace, covered with insulation. Officers persuaded him to climb out and arrested him.
The woman told police that her ex climbed through a previously broken window and while she was on the phone with 911, he grabbed her, forced her out of her bedroom and threw her phone to the floor.
The man gave police several false names before offering his true name. He had several warrants for his arrest and a domestic violence no-contact order between him and his ex.
He was booked into King County Jail for investigation of burglary, domestic violence assault and interfering with the reporting of domestic violence assault, as well as his warrants.
