Police arrest man accused of breaking into Vallejo laundromat, home

VALLEJO (KRON) -- Police in Vallejo arrested a Benicia man Tuesday morning after he allegedly burglarized a laundromat and entered a home while residents were sleeping. 

Police say around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, the 29-year-old suspect entered the laundromat at 783 Sereno Drive. The suspect fled the scene, according to police, and later ran across nearby railroad tracks and hopped a fence. Police say he then ran into a Medic Ambulance business, breaking through a locked door. 

After leaving the Medic Ambulance, the suspect allegedly entered the backyard of a home on the 1600 block of Broadway Street and climbed through a window, waking the residents. One of the residents armed themselves with a rifle, prompting a struggle between him and the suspect, police said. 

After establishing a perimeter in the area and with assistance from the California Maritime Academy, American Canyon Police, the CHP and Vallejo Fire,  officers found the suspect on the roof of another building nearby and took him into police custody. 

The suspect's identity has not been released but police say he was arrested around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning and has been booked in the Solano County Jail on felony charges.
