On 04/04/13 just after 6:00 am a subject entered the victim’s home in the 8600 block of E. Thornwood through the doggy door which leads to the back yard. The female victim, awake in her bedroom, saw the suspect walk by and texted her male roommate who was sleeping in another room. The male woke and confronted the suspect as the suspect was leaving through the door to the back yard. The male gave chase as the suspect jumped the fence and fled on foot.

Officers in the area found the suspect hiding in a bush in the front yard of a home in the 8400 block of E. Rancho Vista. The suspect was arrested after a brief struggle. He was booked on a count of Burglary and Resisting Arrest.
