At this time, approximately 9:00 p.m., a call was received from a resident on Woodland Road for an attempted breaking and entering. The reporting party stated she heard someone trying to open her front door and observed a white male wearing a white t-shirt and jeans attempting to enter her house. While speaking with the reporting party, a neighbor approached officers stating that an unidentified male had entered her house and then left. A male matching the description provided was located in the rear parking lot of the Beaver Country Day School.
