According to the Hopewell Township police report, on Wednesday January 14, 2015 at approximately 6 pm officers responded to a Coach Lane address for the report of an attempted burglary in progress. The homeowner reported that he had been in the shower on the second floor when he heard a loud noise and felt the house shake. The homeowner heard a second loud noise and went downstairs to investigate. The homeowner then saw a man standing on his rear deck near a broken sliding glass door. The man, upon seeing the homeowner, fled on foot to a car that was waiting on Coach Lane. Officers searched the area but were unsuccessful in locating the man or the car.

The man was described as a white male, approximately 6’-3” in height wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt. The car was possibly an SUV.

Two flower pots that had been on the deck were used to damage the sliding glass door. No entry was made to the home and no one was injured.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact Detective Frank Tulko at 609-737-3100 ext. 536.
