On October 27, 2015 at approximately 10:30 PM, Upper Allen Township Police were dispatched to a residence in the 1000 block of Lancaster Boulevard where a victim reported that an individual attempted to gain entry to an exterior patio. The suspect was witnessed fleeing the scene and was described as a young African-American male with a thin build and approximately 6’4″ tall.
