The Seattle Police Department reports that six U District women were held at knife point in their home on Monday.

“On 3/5/12, at approximately 3:30 a.m., officers responded to a house in the 5000 block of 20 Av NE to a report of a burglary in progress. According to the victims, a man who was armed with a knife, broke into their house and gathered the female occupants into a room while threatening to use the knife. The suspect bound the female victims’ hands. One of the victims who was hiding in another room of the house managed to dial 911 before the suspect forced her out of the room.

Officers quickly arrived on scene and arrested the suspect. None of the victims were injured.

The Special Assault Unit and North Burglary Detectives responded and processed the scene.

The 35-year-old suspect was transported to the North Precinct where he is being processed. He will be booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Burglary, Robbery, Attempted Rape, Unlawful Imprisonment and Kidnapping.”
