A crime report (below) details the overnight burglary and break-in spree, during which the man accidentally woke up two residents while inside their homes and, at one point, apparently cut himself badly enough while trying to cut through a screen door that he left a blood trail.
The suspect did manage to steal “numerous items of value” in the process.
From an ACPD crime report:
