The suspect in the home invasion in the Central District last week that terrified a woman is in the King County jail. This is a great example of us all working together to get a dangerous man off the streets.

Ernest Greenwood was identified by numerous tips to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound after I posted surveillance pics and the 911 tapes of the victim calling Seattle Police for help. She had been tied up with electrical cord and computer cable and robbed after the suspect smashed down her front door.

Friday night, Greenwood called Seattle police from a gas station at Martin Luther King Jr. Way S and Renton Ave S and told them he wanted to surrender. He admitted to detectives that it was him in the video but asked for an attorney and refused to discuss the case.

Greenwood has an extensive conviction record for burglaries including incidents in which the front door was smashed in. He is on Dept. of Corrections supervision and had a warrant for his arrest for escape from community custody at the time of the arrest.

His bail is set at $500,000 and he is scheduled to be in court on Wednesday.

Greenwood is Washington’s Most Wanted capture #663 thanks to your help!
