Burglary suspect arrested in Monroe

MONROE — A burglary suspect was arrested Wednesday morning after getting into a struggle with a night watchman in Monroe.

Two men broke into a former masonry business just before 5 a.m. Wednesday in the 13800 block of Fryelands Boulevard, according to Monroe police.

The men were confronted by the night watchman, and a struggle broke out. The watchman reportedly hit one of the suspects and knocked him to the ground, holding him until police arrived.

The second suspect ran. A search for him using a police dog was unsucessful.
