“Wait a Second – You’re not Santa Claus”
The suspect got away, but not before the victim was able to get a good description of the burglar and relay that information to the responding officers.
While the officers on scene were canvassing the area for the suspect, police dispatch received a call from a nearby resident who advised someone was repeatedly pounding on their door asking for help. The description of the person matched the suspect who had just fled from the victim’s apartment.
The man was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Johnson County Jail to await formal charges from the District Attorney’s Office on aggravated burglary.
