“Three male suspects had entered the residence. Suspects described as three young males wearing hoodies. The same residence was again attempted to be broken into the following night, but the homeowner was home and managed to chase the intruders away.

“Video surveillance from the second incident shows two males trying to enter the residence. One suspect described as wearing dark clothing, gloves with a red bandana covering his face. The other male described as wearing a red zip up coat, grey pants, gloves and boots.
