Apartment burglarized after earlier attempt fails

Aug. 28, 2008

An apartment was burglarized in the 4500 block of South Ahmedi Avenue three days after its occupants witnessed two people attempting to break in.

According to a St. Francis police report:

A man who resides there and a friend were sitting in the living room about 6 p.m. Aug. 21 when they heard the sliding patio door rattle as if someone was trying to enter.

When the resident pulled back a blanket hanging over his glass door, he saw a muscular man, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, holding a silver pipe, and a second man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a skinny build. Those men fled after they were spotted.

Afterward, the 19-year-old St. Francis man noticed that the screen in his bedroom was partially off its tracks, but he did not call authorities.

At 1 p.m. Aug. 24, the man returned after being away from home the previous day. He found the door ajar and its locks broken. He discovered that about $200 or $225 was taken from a locked box.
