Redmond police arrested a 30-year-old Seattle man suspected of four burglaries this morning in a strip mall in the 16600 block of Redmond Way downtown.

According to crime prevention officer Mike Dowd, officers were dispatched to the area at 1:26 a.m. after receiving a citizen's call of four broken storefront windows. The citizen also reported that blood was present near the businesses, which didn't have alarms sounding.

Four officers, including the K9 unit, initially searched the area to no avail. One officer ventured a few blocks away to the park and ride at the intersection of 161st Avenue Northeast and Northeast 83rd Street and found the suspect sitting on a bench at 2:10 a.m. Dowd said the suspect was bloodied from apparently punching the storefront windows and possessed property that officers believe came from the businesses, such as money and other items.

The suspect was arrested and taken to the Redmond Police Department's booking facility.

"Excellent work by nightshift officers and an observant citizen," Dowd said.

Police are waiting for videos from the businesses to continue their investigation.
