LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Police said a crime spree started Tuesday morning on Summit Ave. in the Highlands. Neighbors noticed a man who said he was looking for a friend, but the man who police arrested didn’t know anyone at Eric Wright’s house.
“We even have an alarm system, but we didn’t set it today, but you know even the fact that we have stickers on our home and a sign that says we have care security, that didn't stop this person,” said Wright.
Police say Muhammad Dorsey broke into Wright’s home and stole thousands of dollars in electronics and jewelry and then moved onto another home less than a mile away. His next alleged victim was David Blair on Valley Road, according to police.
“They heard him, they heard the glass break and the police were around the corner investigating another break in,” said Blair.
The person who heard him was Mike Muncy. He was sitting on his friend’s porch across the street. He said when saw Dorsey trying to break in, he ran to stop him.
“Determination I guess. I don’t know. I just took off and he was holding his pants up, so he wasn’t running really fast,” said Muncy.
He said he held Dorsey until police got there and they recovered nearly all of the stolen items.
Police said Dorsey admitted to the burglaries and they’re checking to see if he could be connected to others in the area.
