INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A man tried to break into a near east side home, not once, but twice earlier this week.

Police say it happened in the 200 block of Parkview Avenue.

The homeowner’s surveillance camera captured the man’s attempts. In the video, you can see him with a rag in his hand, trying to open the door and kicking it. You can also see him come back the next day, trying to conceal his identity with a hoodie, but the homeowner says she scared him away.

“It is frightening and it angers you all at the same time cause everybody works hard for what they got and he should get a job too and get his own things instead of trying to rob people,” said the homeowner.

Police and the resident hope someone will recognize the man in this video and turn him in.
