A TEEN who tried to break into a Keaton Way home in Aspendale Gardens ran off across a front verandah roof when confronted at about midnight on Tuesday (20 March).
A resident heard noises at about 12.05am and went to investigate and discovered a man, described as being of African appearance, in his “late teens” and with black curly hair trying to force open a window with his hands.
The aspiring burglar “apologised” before fleeing when told police were being called. Minor damage was caused to the laserlite verandah roof.
Police would like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area on the night.
