There was an attempted break-in on the 500 Block of N. 28th Street in Church Hill yesterday. We saw the suspect ringing our neighbor’s doorbell around 10 AM. He hung around for a while and we thought of calling the police, but he left (and there is no law against ringing someone’s door bell).
Later in the day, another neighbor reported that the suspect entered our neighbor’s backyard by jumping the fence and trying to enter the home through a window. He managed to cut away the screening before the police caught him. The suspect is in custody.
Please be aware of these kinds of activities, and keep your stuff locked up and secure. Keep your alarm system activated, if you have one.
