Seattle Police were called to a downtown apartment complex early Sunday after a woman looked out her apartment window and saw an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle – or “drone” - hovering outside her window.

Police say at around 7:45 a.m., the woman was looking out her apartment window near Terry Ave. and Stewart St. when she spotted the drone.

Concerned that the drone was looking into her apartment, the woman reported the incident to her building concierge, who immediately called police.

The woman was able to snap a photo of the drone.

Police say the concierge also went outside the building and spotted two men piloting the drone. The men, who were also carrying a tripod and video camera, soon packed up their gear, climbed into a white Mazda, and drove away.

Police are investigating whether any surveillance cameras in the area captured the incident and don’t yet know much about the drone flyers, but, they say, they can confirm that they definitely weren’t theirs.
