Attempted Break-In Reported On Westfield Ave Apartment

On Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 7:15 p.m., Patrolman Richard Gaylord responded to the 100 block of West Westfield Avenue on a report of a suspicious male that attempted to enter an apartment. Headquarters advised that the incident took place several minutes prior. The caller stated that she heard someone trying to open her apartment door by turning the door knob and pushing and pulling on the door. She asked who was at the door. At that time, the pushing and pulling of the door stopped and she heard the sound of footsteps running down the hallway toward the front door entrance.

The complainant’s roommate stated when she was exiting the rear door of the apartment building, a Hispanic male entered the door as she opened it. She described the male as a Hispanic male, 40-50 years of age., olive skin tone, approximately 5′ 10″ in height, medium length black hair, clean-shaven face, wearing a dark gray button down shirt with a collar, carrying a notebook.

There didn’t appear to be any pry marks or damage to the apartment door.

A check of the area, interior and exterior, revealed negative results for the male matching the description given. All other apartment doors in the building appeared to be in order.
