Interrupted burglars assault resident, police say

By March 23, 2011

A North Davis resident was assaulted after interrupting two men who were burglarizing his home, according to Davis police.

Sgt. Paul Doroshov said the two unidentified burglars entered the Impala Place home at about 11 p.m. Monday and started to ransack the house, at one point making enough noise to wake up one of the residents asleep inside.

The resident went to investigate and confronted the suspects, who “shoved a duffel back in to the victim’s face, causing him to fall back and hit his head on the wall,” Doroshov said. The burglars then left with a laptop computer.

Doroshov said the victim received medical aid but was not hospitalized.

The suspects were described as a thin African-American male, 18 to 19 years old; and an 18-year-old white male standing about 5-foot-10.

Doroshov said while the incident remains under investigation, police don’t believe it’s related to the recent “cat burglary” series in which the suspect or suspects have entered occupied homes through unlocked doors or windows.
