    FILE ART

    Police arrested a 28 year-old man Thursday on suspicion of prowling and attempted burglary, after they discovered him hiding outside of the Fremont home he was allegedly trying to break into.

    At 5:44 p.m., police were dispatched to a home near Plumas Way and Bidwell Drive for a report of a prowler.

    A woman called to report a man who was possibly trying to get into her house from the back yard, according to police.

    Officers searched the area around the house, but could not locate a suspect and left.

    About 30 minutes later, the woman called for officers again, saying the man was back and hiding in her home's shed.

    Police responded with a K-9 dog and searched around the house again, this time locating the suspect. The suspect refused to comply and was apprehended by officers and the K-9.

    The suspect is a resident of Ripon in San Joaquin County. Police have not released his name.
