A Philadelphia man allegedly tried to break into three houses in a single night before being arrested, according to a report from the West Chester police department.
According to reports, a 22-year-old Manayunk man attempted to break in the front door of a house on the 3000 block of W Biddle Street when police were called. The man reportedly threw a skateboard through the house’s front window and fled.
A few minutes later, the same man was seen trying to break into a house on the 300 Block of Chestnut Street by climbing in the second-floor window, according to reports.

Less than an hour later, the same man was reportedly trying to access a house on the 500 block of N New Street when police arrested him.
The man was arrested on
three counts of attempted burglary.
