On Thursday, Nov. 16, at 10:13 p.m., a Salina resident around the 200 block of South 11th reported that someone attempted to break into their vehicle.

According to SPD Sergeant Kyle Tonniges, the victim reported that they heard a car door open while they were outside their home.

"[The victim] looked over at the van parked in the alley and saw the light in the van turning on," Tonniges said. "Then saw someone standing in the open driver's side, rear door — the victim yelled at them, and the person ran off."

Tonniges said they could not locate the suspect, but at 10:21 p.m., the department received another report of an attempted vehicle burglary.

At the 200 block of South Clark Street, a victim reported a vehicle burglary in progress while outside their home.

"The victim witnessed a white male wearing a black hoodie and black shorts carrying a backpack," Tonniges said. "The victim witnessed this suspect outside near the vehicles, and they were making motions like they were trying to break into the car and looking through the windows of the vehicles."

Tonniges said SPD could not locate the suspect, but neither incident reported any stolen items.
