DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton Police are looking for an armed suspect who tried to break into a woman’s home.
Police were called to the 1700 block of McArthur Avenue Saturday around 2 a.m.
The victim told officers she heard a knock on her front door and bedroom window and saw a dark figure walking around outside her house.
She said at first she thought it was her son who was stopping by, so she went to the front door and opened it. She said when she opened the door, a man was dressed in all black and pointed a gun at her. She said she immediately shut the door and the man’s hand that was holding a gun got caught in the door. She said he continued to struggle and tried to get in as she yelled for her mother to come help her. She said after a short time, he ran from the scene.
Officers are still investigating and looking for the suspect.
