According to authorities, two suspects attempted to break into a home on the 7900 block of Hermosa Street around 10:39 p.m. Sunday.
Police responded to the report of a prowler but were unable to locate any suspects.
The victim told officers that he and his wife were asleep in their bedroom when they heard the gate to their side yard open and the voices of at least two people talking to each other. That's when the suspects attempted to open the side garage door but fled when the victim's dog began barking from inside the garage.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with any information related to this incident was urged to contact the Ventura Police Department at (805) 339-4441.
