Two Madison homes visited by burglar

According to a police report, a downtown Madison resident was awakened early Sunday morning as a burglar reached into her home through a window screen he cut.

The victim had left a window cracked for fresh air, and grabbed onto the criminal’s arm. The intruder pulled his arm back and fled from the home. He was reported as being white; around 5 feet 6 inches tall with a slender build.

A short time later the same morning, another building resident returned home to find his unit burglarized. Electronics and money were among items taken. He told police that he had left a door unlocked. A police dog arrived to track the burglar, but no suspect was found.
