A dog came to the rescue for residents in a home invasion in North Seattle Wednesday morning. The incident happened around 3:20 a.m. in the 9700 block of 3rd Avenue Northwest.
A female resident heard a noise outside her room, got up to check it and was immediately pepper sprayed by one of the suspects. She fell and was pepper sprayed a second time.
The victim's dog attacked the suspect, who responded by kicking and spraying the dog.
The female victim saw a second suspect carrying safe from her brother's bedroom.
She yelled and her father came out of the back bedroom. At this point, the suspect pulled out a silver handgun.
After the male victim told the suspects there was no money in the house, the first suspect demanded her phone and the two left.
Residents then called 911 and police arrived within two minutes, but could not locate the two suspects.
The suspects are described as two men, both around 6 feet tall and 190 pounds. One was approximately 18-21 years old and wearing a dark bandana and dark hoodie. The second suspect was described as 22-29 years old.
The spray affected all three residents, but no one was taken to the hospital.
