READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington man called WPD to tell them he scared off a would-be intruder. It all happened at 715 Mercer Avenue around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

The man told police he heard someone breaking into his home, so he yelled to scare the person off. By the time the resident got to the door he saw a black man in a red jacket running away. It appeared that he used a shovel to try to pry the window open.

But the suspect left his bike behind. Now officers have the bike and are processing it and its tracks in hopes of finding leads
