The 36-year-old man was trying to open a window at a home in the Magnolia neighborhood early Friday morning, Seattlepi.com reported. After he lost his glasses, a dog began barking and he took off.
The residents called 911. The burglar came back, ringing the doorbell, asking for his glasses and again leaving empty-handed.
A suspect was arrested nearby, hiding in the bushes.
