Here’s the latest from Kent police in its investigation into a home invasion early Tuesday that left one man injured:
Kent Police are continuing their investigation into yesterday’s disturbance at an east hill home that left a Kent man seriously injured.
Officers responded to a home in the 22800 block of 103 Ave SE around 2 AM after receiving reports that a man had been captured as he and two others forced they way into the house. Investigating officers found the residents of the home unharmed and without loss. They also discovered an alleged suspect being detained by the residents, badly beaten and suffering from serious head trauma. He was subsequently taken to Harborview Medical Center where he is being treated for a series of facial fractures and other internal injuries.
Kent Detectives spent the day reviewing evidence, as well as the statements of those involved, in an effort to tie down the chain of events. “There are many questions that still need to be answered…” said Kent Police Sergeant Pat Lowery. As a part of their investigation, Detectives hope to re-interview the injured man sometime in the next few days, once his condition has improved.
Once complete, the investigation will be sent to the King County Prosecutor for review and consideration of charges.
