Police say two men swinging an axe to break in an apartment, turned on a property manager with the axe when confronted.

The incident happened in the 3200 block of north Lewis Avenue yesterday.  Renters of an apartment noticed apparent damage to the doorway of their unit from an earlier break in and called the property manager to report the damage.

As the manager arrived, he found two men with an axe trying to break into a second apartment.  After the burglars took two swings of their axe toward the property manager, they fled to their car and drove away.

Police do have the license plate information but have not yet located the suspects.

Authorities say the suspects were two men with light skin, dark hair in their 20’s.
