SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- Officials said a man was arrested after they saw that he had kicked in the front door of a house and broken a car window.

Sheriff's deputies originally responded early Tuesday morning to a call that an adult male allegedly broke into a home on the 17600 block of East Alki Road. A separate homeowner on Alki also called 911 and reported a male broke into their home as well.

Joshua Demers and his fiance were the victims of one of the burglaries.

"We were both sitting there just kinda waiting for someone to come looking for us. Just a scary moment where you don't really know what to expect," said Demers.

Sheriff's deputies and a Spokane City K9 unit were at the second residence when they heard what they believed to be someone attempting to kick in a door south of them. Officials said they located Jason Jones, 28, at the third residence at Long Road and Olive Lane. The homeowners were out of town according to authorities.

Officials said they deployed the K9 unit when Jones allegedly refused to follow deputy commands. Jones allegedly continued to fight and was eventually tased by officials.

Police took Jones into custody and deputies said they realized he was in a state of Excited Delirium and requested medics. He was taken to a local hospital to be treated.

Authorities said Jones will be booked into Spokane County Jail on three counts of Residential Burglary, Malicious Mischief, and Obstructing and Resisting Arrest.

None of the homeowners were injured and the only item that was taken was a purse. Officials said the purse was returned to the owner.
