A man wanted in connection with a home-invasion robbery last week has turned himself in to Seattle police.
The 59-year-old suspect flagged down a police officer in the 7500 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South on Saturday and turned himself in, according to police.
The home-invasion robbery occurred last Tuesday morning in the 100 block of 20th Avenue. The victim called 911 just after 10:30 a.m. to report that a man had forced open her door, restrained her and stole some cash and electronics, according to police.
Police later released a surveillance photo of the man identified as a suspect. The man who surrendered to police told officers he was aware that his photo had appeared on TV, police said.
