Police are investigating a burglary attempt in which a man tried to drill through a door lock at a Burbank residence on Monday afternoon, police said.
At 1:15 p.m., the man – described as Hispanic, in his 50s and roughly 175 pounds – knocked on the door of a Burbank townhome in the 700 block of Olive Avenue, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn. He was reportedly wearing jeans and a polo shirt.
Five minutes later, after receiving no response, the man knocked again.
Shortly after, the resident inside the home heard a drilling sound coming from outside and ran upstairs to call the police, Ryburn said.
