Dixon resident foils burglary attempt
DIXON, Calif. -- Four suspects, two of them armed, were foiled in their attempt to burglarize a home in Dixon early Wednesday morning when the resident pepper-sprayed them, police said.
Police responded at 4:56 a.m. to a house in the 300 block of North Second Street, Dixon police Officer Ronnie Sefried said.
The resident told officers that four people dressed in dark clothing and wearing masks had tried to get inside the home.
Two were armed with an unknown type of long gun, Sefried said.
The resident sprayed the would-be intruders with pepper spray, and they fled in a car, Sefried said. The resident was not injured.
The motive for the burglary attempt is unknown, and the incident is still under investigation, Sefried said.
