KSCB News - May 29, 2014 10:15 am

On Wednesday, May 28, 2014 at about 11:00 p.m., an officer on patrol observed a man chasing another man near the 300 block of Yale Avenue. Additional officers were summoned to the area. Officers arrived in the area of the 900 block of West Second Street and observed the two men. One male appeared to be restraining the other on the ground.

The 34 year old male victim told officers that he was in his residence at the 300 block of Yale Avenue when he observed a male suspect rummaging through his vehicle. The victim confronted the suspect in his front yard when the suspect ran away. The victim gave chase and caught the suspect at the 900 block of West Second Street.

Investigating officers discovered items stolen from the vehicle at the location where the suspect was caught by the victim. The 23 year old male suspect was subsequently arrested.

An affidavit has been forwarded to the Seward County Attorney seeking charges of burglary to a motor vehicle and theft.
