Utica, NY (WIBX) - Utica police arrested a man after he was chased out of a home he was allegedly in the process of robbing. The report states that the homeowner arrived at his residence on Seward Avenue around 9:30 p.m., and found the suspect rummaging through his house. After contacting the police, the homeowner attacked the suspect, striking him with his fist.

Officers responding to the scene quickly located the man, who fled the scene, on Roosevelt Drive. They say he was bleeding from his nose due to the strike from the homeowner. The suspect is 40-year-old Frederick Robertson of Butler Avenue. He is charged with 2nd Degree Burglary, which is a Class D Felony, and Possession of Burglar Tools, a Class A Misdemeanor. According to the report, Robertson possessed a screw driver and a flashlight at the time of the crime.

Utica police officials say Frederick broke the basement window to enter the home. He is also accused of rummaging through the victims vehicle. Frederick will answer the charges at a later date in Utica City Court.
