Add to the above: last night, two young males attempted to break into my residence in the 6600 block of Washington Avenue. They broke the glass on my front door and kicked the door hard enough to tear the frame from the plaster. They fled in a full-size red pickup truck after hearing my yell at them. If you have any information call University City Police Non-Emergency (314) 725-2211. I PROMISE A REWARD if your information leads to an arrest!

Thank you for adding that, Earl. I'm glad you were home to run them off, but that had to be a little scary.
