Doorbell video may help city police solve attempted break-in

YOUNGSTOWN — Police may have obtained clues from a home-security service to help them solve an attempted burglary at a home on Euclid Avenue on the East Side Saturday.

A woman reported that her alarm company notified her at 11:14 p.m. Saturday that someone was trying to get into the front door of the home.

Police officers spoke with a company representative, who had been on the phone with the resident because the company first notified the woman.

The company and resident had access to the video from the home’s doorbell. Police viewed the video and reported that the suspect was a male about 5-foot-10 and 220 pounds wearing work boots and shorts, light jacket with three-striped bottom lining and striped cuffs. He opened the screen door but did not enter.

The man was balding and had facial hair.
