Officers were called to a home in the 900 block of Holt Crescent NE shortly after 2:00 a.m. after hearing that a resident was awoken by a loud bang.

The person who was home at the time found a man standing in the kitchen, after kicking in one of the doors.

He was confronted by the resident and took off.
