The report of an attempted break-in at a Fairmount Terrace home Saturday turned out to be a case of mistaken identity, police said.

Police were called about 4:30 p.m. by a resident to report what she feared was a burglary in progress.

The woman told police someone was at her front door, trying to break into the house.

When officers arrived, they found a man was on the home's front steps -- but discovered that he had been hired by the homeowner to replace her screen door.
