A downtown resident was awakened early this morning by the sound of a window being opened at his W. Mifflin St. residence. He turned on the lights, and scared off the would-be burglar. A man wearing a backpack was seen walking away from the home. The window, which had been closed, but unlocked, was now open. Responding officers detained a 24-year old homeless man. He was sweating profusely, but probable cause could not be established to immediately make an arrest.
