Mayor Harrell Statement on South Seattle Home Invasion Arrests 

Seattle – Today, Mayor Bruce Harrell released the following statement after Chief of Police Adrian Diaz announced the arrest of several suspects related to South Seattle home invasion robberies: 

“I appreciate our officers and detectives who never lost sight of bringing justice to the victims of these violent crimes. The arrests today are an example of good police work, deliberate efforts to build a case, and an outcome that I hope will put an end to this string of robberies. Perhaps these arrests can help to restore peace of mind to many of our South Seattle neighbors. 

“Our police department has a responsibility to support the safety of all Seattle residents, and it’s through actions, like today’s announcement, that demonstrate that commitment in real terms. To AAPI communities who have faced a rise in fear, threats, and violence, and to any person who feels vulnerable in our city, know that my administration and our police service will continue working every day to create a Seattle where everyone can feel safe and be safe.”
