The Crafton Police Department responded to an address on S. Linwood Ave. between Ewing Rd. and Crafton Blvd. for a report of an attempted burglary. No entry was made into the residence however it appeared as though an unknown person attempted to gain entry through the rear door by punching out the doorknob lock/keyhole. Officers did observe fresh tool marks/scrapes to the keyhole area. The lock was not defeated and is still functional. No other points of entry appeared to have been tampered with. If any resident observed someone in a backyard or acting in a suspicious manner we would appreciate your call with the information. Please remember to secure all points of entry into your residence and secure your vehicles.
