Seattle police arrested three people in two separate burglaries on Saturday, one in Rainier Valley and another on Capitol Hill.
After a witness reported to police that two people were breaking into a home in the valley in the 2900 block of South Byron Street, officers surrounded the house. One person leapt from the second story of the home and ran. A K9 officer tracked the 32-year-old man to a nearby backyard and arrested him.
Police then entered the home and found another person, a 48-year-old woman, hiding in a downstairs closet. Both were booked into King County Jail on investigation of burglary.
Later in the evening, a person broke into a Capitol Hill home in the 900 block of East Thomas Street, damaged a door and window and threatened one of the residents. Officers called to the scene arrested a 43-year-old man and booked him into King County Jail on investigation of burglary.
