Possible burglary averted on Latham Street

 

An out-of-towner helped prevent a possible residential burglary on the 2000 block of Latham Street last Saturday afternoon, police said.

Police spokesperson Liz Wylie said a man staying with some friends was left alone in the residence when only minutes later he heard someone outside the house.

"He heard a knock at the door right after they left, but he didn't answer it because he was a guest in the house," Wylie said. "Within a minute or so after the knock the door popped open."

The man confronted the intruder, who was carrying an unidentifiable object or tool. The suspect fled on a bicycle before authorities arrived. He is described as a short, Hispanic male with a medium build, approximately 25 years old. He was wearing a blue or purple T-shirt.

I'm not surprised. I lived on Latham Street and it was SCARY. Soo many sex offenders and illegals. No girl should walk alone on Latham St.
