Police have asked for the public's help in identifying a man involved in the burglary of an occupied apartment Wednesday morning.

According to police, at around 4 a.m. Wednesday, a young woman asleep on her couch at the Springtree Condominiums on the 4300 block of Sunset Boulevard awoke to an unknown male suspect next to her.

When the woman woke up and looked at the suspect, he fled. As soon as the suspect realized the victim had awakened, he left the residence.

He gained entry into the residence through a ground level window.

The man is described as a white male, between 22 and 25 years old. He is about 5-foot-7-inches tall with a medium build and olive skin. He has brown, curly "matted down" hair that is "grungy" in appearance. He has fuzzy eyebrows and "smallish" black eyes and was wearing a navy blue zip-up hoodie and dark blue jeans.

Anyone with information about the suspect is urged to contact  Det. Pete Kordel of the Renton Police Department at 425-430-7647 or pkordel@rentonwa.gov.
