Chesterton Police are investigating the attempted burglary on Sunday of a residence in the 400 block of West Lincoln Ave.

According to police, at 8:42 p.m. a resident was walking down the stairs near the back door when “someone forcibly opened the door.” The resident screamed, pushed the door closed, and called 911.

Police said that a K-9 unit failed to track the suspect, who did leave a shot print on the door.

No estimate of damage was available.

Meanwhile, just before being dispatched to the residence, the CPD also received a report of someone’s banging on the door of a residence in the 300 block of South Second Street. In that case a male subject in dark clothing was seen running across Lincoln Ave. to the south, police said.
