Chico Police have called off their search for a man who reportedly broke into a Chico home Thursday afternoon.
Police began searching for a suspect who allegedly broke into home on East Lassen Ave around 1 p.m. The suspect reportedly broke into a home where a 15-year-old child was home sick. The child confronted the unarmed burglar and then was able to escape unharmed and alert authorities.
Officers blocked off Capistrano and Carmel Place and one witness told Action News Now she saw a man dressed in black jump a fence behind the Palo Verde Apartments. A K-9 unit was brought to the scene, but authorities did not find any signs of the suspect.
Police say the suspect is white male in his 40's, with a mustache.
