OKLAHOMA CITY – Authorities are hoping to identify a man who may know about a series of home burglaries in northwest Oklahoma City.
On Dec. 16, officers were called to a home in the 2700 block of N.W. 27th St. regarding a first-degree burglary.
When officers arrived, the victim told police that minutes after his wife arrived home, they heard a noise at the window. When they looked outside, they saw a stranger trying to break into the house. The victim says he turned the back porch lights on and off, which scared off the alleged suspect.
