Two men attempted to break into a home on the 400 block of East South Street at 7:40 p.m. June 28, Elmhurst police said.
Neighbors told police they saw the two men, who wore bandanas over their faces, trying the doors and windows of the home. One of the neighbors grabbed a baseball bat and chased them off. They left behind a bicycle. Police tracked the men with a K-9 unit, but they got away.
One suspect was described as having a red bandana covering his mouth, and wearing dark clothing. The other man was wearing a white T-shirt with dark, very long, baggie jean shorts. He had a blue bandana covering his mouth. Witnesses described him as short and stocky, possibly Hispanic, with his hair shaved on the sides and longer on top.
The suspects did not gain access into the home and no damage was found.
