See this message from a 1st Street NW resident in Truxton Circle/Bates area:
Someone tried to break into our house on First Street in Truxton Circle about an hour ago. He came in through the back gate and used a ladder to get to a second floor window. Luckily, he was startled by one of our tenants and left quickly. The tenant thought maybe somebody was working on the house, so it took a minute to figure out what had just happened.
