Westgate: Two Attempted Burglaries in Same Neighborhood, Time Period

Arlington Heights police received a report about 11:40 p.m. of screen window that was pushed inward in the zero to 100 block of North Wilke Road. A person came home to find the evidence of a break-in at the home. Then at about 11:50 p.m. a resident in the 1400 block of St. James Place called police to report that they heard a noise like someone trying to open a front window to the house. When the resident walked toward the front window, he saw a white/male moving away from the window. The white/male offender was described as 5′ 9″ to 5′ 10″, wearing a red T-shirt and white shorts. He was last seen in the North Reuter Drive and West St. James Place and Westgate Park.

The two locations are within 500 to 1,000 feet apart and the cases are possibly related by the same offender or a team of offenders.
