Danville man interrupts home burglary

Police searching for culprits

A Danville man interrupted a burglary at his home Monday afternoon, during which a suspect brandished the homeowner's own firearm, according to police.

At 12:36 p.m., officers were initially called to a home in the 600 block of Alamatos Drive on a report of a residential burglary, Danville police Lt. Allan Shields said.

After leaving the home, the victim had come back to the residence to find a vehicle parked in the driveway with a man in the driver's seat, Shields said.

When the victim approached the vehicle, another man exited the home, pointed a firearm at the victim and then fled in the car, according to police.

Shields said just a firearm was taken in the burglary and it was believed to be the one the suspect brandished.

Police are searching for the men, who are said to be in their 20s.

The vehicle was described as a silver or charcoal Chrysler 300, according to police.
