Seattle Police are looking for a duo who might be some of the worst Airbnb guests ever after a man reported finding his Capitol Hill apartment trashed, and two strange men inside with a bogus story. Adding insult to injury, the unwanted guests were reportedly wearing the host’s clothes.
According to the report on the June 29th incident, police were called to the building in the 300 block of Summit Ave E around 9 PM to investigate the ransacking. The victim told police that he had rented the apartment to a woman through Airbnb and that his building management called him the day before to report “that someone from his apartment had parked in the wrong assigned parking space.” When the apartment manager called about the problem again on the 29th, the victim said he went to the apartment and found two men inside and his apartment trashed. The men — described only as two white males, one bald, one with a “blonde buzz cut” — were also wearing the victim’s clothes.
According to the report, the men told the victim they knew the woman renting the apartment and were leaving to pick up her mother from Harborview. As the suspects left, the victim found that his apartment had been ransacked:
Police are investigating the incident as a burglary and there have been no arrests. The victim, however, might have found a few clues for detectives to work with. According to the report, the victim discovered “a notebook with what he believed to be the information of previous victims of the suspects” among the debris left behind in the apartment and contacted police to hand over the possible evidence.
