The Victoria Police Department is issuing a reminder to Victoria residents to lock their doors after a break-in attempt was interrupted by a home-owner.
Police said they received a report on Wednesday, July 29 about an incident that took place at a multi-unit residential building in the 700-block of Tyee Road.
The report was for a break and enter that had been interrupted by the home-owner, who said the suspect tried to open her locked patio door located on the ground floor.
The woman said she confronted the man through the patio door, who then attempted to open an adjacent door to the suite. This door was also locked.
The man fled the scene before officers arrived after he attempted to open a third patio door, which was also locked.
