Seattle police say they interviewed and released a man who they labeled a person of interest in a string of break-ins in the U-District.

Soon after police released images of the man, clad in black and wearing a Seahawks cap, the man turned himself in to a precinct to talk to officers. The man was questioned and released on Thursday.

The burglaries remain under investigation, police said.

ORIGINAL POST | Seattle police are searching for a man caught on camera sneaking into a University District sorority house earlier this month.

Police believe the man could be connected with a series of burglaries on Greek Row and in other rooming houses near the University of Washington. In several of the incidents victims, many times women, reported waking up to finding a strange man in their rooms, police said.

The video footage released by police on Thursday was taken by one sorority house on Feb. 20. In the video a man can be seen following a woman down the street, in the 4500 block of 17th Avenue Northeast, and quickening his pace as a woman opened the door of a sorority house. The man followed the woman inside, stared directly into the security camera, walked up a flight of stairs then turned and let, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to dial 911.
