Just after 4 p.m., police were called to the 4100 block of Font Hill Drive where the victim said he heard a noise coming from the first floor of his house.

The suspect was a medium-complexion black man with no facial hair. He was about 5'8" wearing a black hoodie and black pants.

Later in the day, sometime between 4:20 and 6:45 p.m. police say suspects smashed a back glass door at a residence on the 4500 block of Doncaster Drive.
