Police: Suspect broke into woman's home, then called 911 on himself

Police: Suspect broke into woman's home, then called 911 on himself

Local authorities are scratching their heads after a man broke into a woman's home on Friday, then called police to report the incident. 

This all happened around 10 a.m. in the 1200 block of 4 1/2 Street NW, just north of Kutzky Park. The 37-year-old resident told police she woke up to find a man, later identified as Abdikadir Noor, 27, rifling through her things.

When she tried to call 911, Noor grabbed her and threw her to the floor. He told her that he "wanted his money," notes the report. When the woman said she didn't know what he was talking about, Noor grabbed a tire iron and smashed the TV.

In a strange twist of events, Noor then threatened to call police. The woman responded by saying, "please do," according to the report.

As they waited for police to arrive, Noor began rubbing the woman inappropriately and asking for sex. He may have been high on drugs at the time, said RPD Capt. John Sherwin.

When officers showed up, they arrested Noor without incident. He faces several felony charges, including 1st-degree burglary and 3rd-degree assault.

He used the tire iron to pry the door open, Sherwin said. The female victim was not seriously injured in the incident.
