The Germantown Police Department is investigating two attempted residential break-ins that occurred in the early hours Wednesday.
The attempted burglaries occurred about 1 a.m. in the northwest corner of Donges Bay Road and South 145. The first involved an unlocked rear patio door of an occupied residence, according to a press release from the Germantown Police Department. A family member observed the suspect briefly before he fled on foot.
The second was a residence directly behind the first where noises were heard as if someone was trying to open the doors, according to the press release. A window screen was also removed from its frame.
The suspect is described as a black male between 20 to 40 years of age, more than six-feet tall with an average build and large eyes.
Germantown police are asking residents to be vigilant, watch their neighbors, keep homes secure and report suspicious activity immediately to police.
