Police in Fayette County are looking for a man who broke into two Fayette City homes over the weekend.
Authorities said the first incident was reported after the man knocked on the front door of a Market Street home. Although a woman was home, she didn't answer the door.
Police said the man then opened a window and entered the house. The woman confronted the man, and he left the house without further incident.
According to police, the man then walked to a home on Peach Street and again knocked on the front door. When no one answered, the man opened a window and entered the home.
Investigators said 13-year-old Tyler Steeber was home at the time.
Steeber told Channel 11’s Timyka Artist that his family was at a football game when he looked out the window and didn’t recognize the man standing at the door. He said moments later he heard the man in his house.
He said he went into a bathroom and locked himself inside. While inside the bathroom, Steeber said he called his mother and 911.
“When I was done talking to them I heard footsteps and a male voice asking if anybody was here so I screamed, ‘Yes!’” Steeber said.
The man then left the house with a laptop computer before police arrived.
“I feel what I did was the best thing because if I would have opened the door, who knows what would have happened,” Steeber said. “My parents and school always told me that if anything wrong happens to call them, and if it’s a real emergency to call 911.”
The man is described as a white, in his 20s, standing about 5 feet 7 inches tall. He is thin with short dark hair and a beard, officials said. According to police, he may have been driving a silver SUV.
Anyone with information on the incidents is asked to contact police.
