SUAMICO, WI (WTAQ) - Brown County Sheriff's say two teens are facing charges following a home invasion Friday night.
Authorities say they were called around 10 p.m. for a report of a burglary in progress at the home in the 2700 block of Fenmore Lane.
When deputies arrived, they learned the homeowner returned to find a stranger at the door leading to the house from the garage. According to the homeowner, the suspect then ran back into the house.
Deputies searched the house but did not find anyone.
With the help of a K-9 officer, they then searched some woods near the house, where they found a 16-year-old boy hiding in the trees. He matched the description of the stranger seen in the garage. The boy was taken to the hospital for minor injuries he suffered while trying to run away from the police dog.
Further investigation indicated a second 16-year-old boy was also inside the house when the homeowner arrived, but he ran away. He was also arrested later.
Both teens were released to their parents.
Deputies say it didn't appear anything was missing or damaged at the home.
The teens apparently got in through an unlocked garage service door, and authorities remind people to lock their doors to deter crimes such as this one.
