A 14-year-old boy on Davis Road saw an unidentified man attempt to break into his parents' home by climbing through a window Thursday morning, police said.

The teen then called his mother on the phone after seeing the older man, described as scruffy and with dark hair, a slight build and tan, attempting to break into the home about 11 a.m., according to police.

The mother alerted police, but the suspect could not be located.
