PHOENIX – Police are seeking information about a suspect that burglarized a home twice in two days in North Phoenix near Union Hills Drive and 13th Avenue.

The homeowners were burglarized on March 28 and the victim’s child found the family dog dead in the pool.  The next day on March 29 the family came home and interrupted the suspect while he was burglarizing the home a second time.

The suspect allegedly pointed a gun at the father in front of the child and said “don’t call police.” The father however, pulled out his own handgun and fired several shots at the suspect, but missed, according to Phoenix Police.

The suspect was last seen jumping fences in the area, and authorities say he has a very distinctive circular tattoo on his forehead.  The suspect is being described as a Hispanic male in his mid 20’s with a shaved head and weighs about 165 pounds and is about 6-feet-tall.

Police say the victims are very upset about the crimes that took place in there home, and do not wish to talk to media.
