A juvenile said a man broke into his Jefferson Street residence during the night.
The boy flagged down Commerce Police Department officers last week, claiming that he heard the front door open at his house. When he went downstairs, he said he saw a man standing in the living room.
The suspect reportedly ran and the boy chased him and pushed him down the front steps.
“Blows were exchanged,” according to the boy. He said the suspect then ran and jumped into a black Nissan vehicle.
The juvenile had a cut on his arm but no red or swollen areas on his face.
There were no signs of forced entry and the door had been locked. Two adults were asleep in the house when the incident occurred.
Nothing was taken from the residence.
