SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

A 21-year-old transient is in the Scottsdale police doghouse after he allegedly crawled through a dog door to burglarize a residence Thursday.

John Akins was arrested after a brief struggle with police after they found him hiding in some bushes in the front yard of a nearby home in the area of Chaparral and Pima roads, according to a Scottsdale online police report.

A 49-year-old woman who owns the home saw the suspect walk by her bedroom door just after 6 a.m. and texted her roommate, a 47-year-old man who was asleep another room, according to the report.

The roommate woke to the text, confronted the suspect as he was walking out the back door and chased him to a fence, which the suspect jumped before fleeing, according to the report.

Police said they found him in the 8400 block of East Rancho Vista Drive.

Akins was booked into jail on a count of burglary and resisting arrest.
