Police arrested an 18-year-old Milwaukee man Friday afternoon after he opened the door to a Shorewood home, but was confronted by the resident at the entrance.
According to a text alert by the department, the man opened the unlocked front door to a home in the 1600 block of East Menlo Boulevard around 2:20 p.m., but was confronted by the resident.
With the suspect stopped at the door, he asked the resident if he could charge his cell phone and was told no. Once the resident closed and locked the door, the suspect began to peer into the windows, according to police. He was arrested for trespassing without incident.
Police say the suspect was carrying three knives and a mask. He has been turned over to Milwaukee police for questioning in other incidents in the city.
Shorewood police are reminding residents to keep doors locked, even if they're home.
