An intruder was stabbed and killed during a home invasion in a quiet North Bend neighborhood early Monday, May 13, 2013.
Deputies responded to the home on Sunday when a woman, Tennyson Jacobson, who was home with her infant daughter and mother, called 911 after an intruder entered the house through an unlocked back door, assaulted and robbed her.
After the suspect fled, police conducted a K-9 search of the area, but were unable to locate him. One nearby resident reported that at least six King County Sheriffs vehicles were on the scene and officers had “a perimeter set up by Mountain Meadow Farm and the Mount Si Nursery,” adding that at around 4PM police were gone.
Then around 1AM, May 13th, King County Sheriff Officers were called back to the North Bend home when an intruder again entered the home with the family inside. A struggle ensued between Jacobson’s husband, Kyle, and the intruder. In an effort to help her husband, Tennyson stabbed the intruder with a kitchen knife. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe the same man who broke in Sunday afternoon was responsible for the overnight home invasion, but are unsure why the home was targeted. King County Sheriffs spokesperson, Cindi West, said it does appear that the incidents were random, that the homeowners did not know the intruder.
The story will be updated and more information becomes available.
