A suspect attempting a home invasion robbery in Clairemont Mesa East was outnumbered by the residents inside the home, who acted quickly and didn’t let him get away with the crime.
San Diego police say a man in his 30s allegedly broke into a bedroom window of a home in the 3600-block of Auburndale Street at around 11:20 p.m. Friday.

Instead of complying, the people inside the house held the suspect down and called police.
