9400 block Spirit St


49-year-old male


Officers were dispatched to a homeowner who confronted a group of young males who had entered the victim's garage. Upon fleeing, one of the suspects pointed a handgun at the victim. The victim states that their garage door was left open a quarter of the way, and while sitting in their home, heard the garage door open. The victim investigates and observes four "young" looking males, all dressed in dark hoodies that were cinched closed, in his garage. The suspects run from the garage to an awaiting vehicle and leave the area. It appears nothing was taken from the garage.
