Elmhurst Police Investigate Residential Burglary Attempts
Elmhurst Police are investigating two attempted residential burglaries that occurred on Tuesday evening between 6:30 & 7:10 p.m. in the area of North Avenue & West Ave in Elmhurst.
At 6:33 p.m. in the 300 Block of River Glen, a resident heard a window screen being opened and an outside motion light activate. The resident then saw a dark pick up or SUV with a loud muffler leaving the area. Nothing was taken and there was no suspect description.
A short time later at 7:10 p.m. in the 500 block of Third Street, a resident discovered a male/black, 5’09, thin build, wearing a dark hoodie, standing in the foyer of the home holding a handgun. The resident fled inside of the house and summoned a family member who called police. Responding police checked the house and did not locate the offender. It appears that the offender may have entered an open rear patio door. Nothing is known missing at this time.
