Police are investigating a new report of a prowler inside a Carlsbad home Saturday.
A resident called 911 Saturday morning to initially report someone lurking outside their home near Sutter and Yosemite streets.
When Carlsbad Police officers arrived, officials said they determined that the prowler had gotten inside the house, but fled when the 911 call was made.
Police used their helicopter to search for the suspect, who is described as a white man in his late teens. However, after coming up empty handed, the search was called off around 2:30 p.m.
Nothing was taken from the home, and no one was injured inside.
This marks the third report of a prowler in the past week.
Early Wednesday morning, police said a man broke into a Mira Mesa apartment to hover over a woman and her daughter as they slept.
Some Kensington residents reported this week that a man scratched at a back door and was seen lurking around fences.
