EVERETT — Investigators might never know why a south Seattle man without any criminal history and a good job took part in a terrifying home invasion robbery in the Silver Lake area.
Two intruders forced their way into a woman’s houseMarch 29. They kicked in locked bedroom and bathroom doors to get to the woman who was hiding in the bathtub. One man grabbed the woman’s phone from her. He also ripped a necklace off the woman. Detectives don’t know why the men picked that house.
Calvin Bennett, 27, worked at turning himself into authorities. He started calling sheriff’s deputies the day after the robbery. He later took a bus up to Snohomish County, flagged down a sheriff’s captain and admitted he was involved.
The defendant offered no explanation Thursday. “I’m sorry for my actions. I ask for forgiveness,” Bennett said. “I’m ready to get this over with.”
He is focused on getting back to his young child, Bennett said. He told the judge he had been employed, working for the U.S. Postal Service in Tukwila. He seemed surprised when Alsdorf told the court the victim also was a postal worker.
