A 22-year-old homeless male was arrested Sunday night after entering a residence in West Bremerton.
According to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect fled on foot when confronted by a female in the house who was awoken while sleeping. KCSO K-9 Heiko and his handlers, Deputy Baker and Deputy Meyers, found the suspect hiding in bushes near the victim’s residence.
The KCSO incident report states that the female victim heard the neighbor’s dog barking for about an hour or so before she went to bed. The suspect, Dominick Demming, soon entered the residence and went up to the female victim’s bedroom. After the homeowner asked who was there, Demming allegedly responded by saying “I’m sick,” resulting in the female victim leaping out of her bed and running downstairs.
Documents state that Demming went through the kitchen and left his shoes at the residence. After being apprehended, he allegedly told authorities that he was going to a friend’s house and entered the wrong residence. Demming was transported to Kitsap County Jail and booked for residential burglary with a bail of $50,000.
