Attempted Break-In Has Dunwoody Police on the Hunt

The say that an attempted burglary Oct. 28 could have had a possible sexual motive. They are asking people for leads in the case.

Dunwoody Police are looking for a suspect that is wanted for attempted burglary and as a possible sexual predator.

Police reported the hunt yesterday. On Oct. 28, at a little after midnight, the suspect attempted to enter a Dunwoody home, police say.

The home was on Daventry Drive, according to sources.

The resident heard a noise and came downstairs to check out, police said. She saw the suspect through the window.

The man is believed to be in his mid 20s or early 30s. Police say the suspect has a possible sexual motive to the attempted break-in based on the hour and the fact the house was likely occupied.

Many home invasions occur during the work day, when residents aren’t expected to be home.

Anyone with information regarding this subject or incident is asked to contact the Dunwoody Police Department, Det. William Yeargin at 678-382-6916 or william.yeargin@dunwoodyga.gov.

Here’s the poster of the suspect. Submit anonymous tips via “SUBMIT A CRIME TIP” or text via TIPSOFT program.

Why is the address, neighborhood, or vicinity not given?

Very legitimate question. Here's the answer. Dunwoody Police did not initially report it. I have been told (and experienced) that they no longer list online the actual police report that would contain this information. A very cooperative police department, in my opinion, is also cooperative in getting this information. There's the police report route of course, but that can take days. In this case, I believe the community is served by knowing this is out there with even the limited information. We will follow up and it will be updated very likely today. And thanks for reading.

Thanks for responding. The main reason I ask is that it might "jog" someones memory and make people more alert...even thought we should always be alert.
