Neighbors on Dexter and Eslava streets said police officers were taking a composite picture of a suspect door to door in the area Friday morning, January 17.
Police believe the man is responsible for two recent burglaries. One was reported in the 200 block of Dexter, and another in the 1400 block of Eslava.
After breaking to one house on Dexter, police said the suspect assaulted a resident in the home. Less than an hour later, he broke into to another house around the corner on Eslava. He was apparently able to get into that house through a pet door.
“The resident woke up hearing sounds in his home, went downstairs and saw this individual leaving his residence through a dog door,” Ashley Rains with Mobile Police said.
If you have any information on the burglaries, or your recognize the suspect call Mobile Police.
