San Diego police surround Bankers Hill home with suspect inside

Officers were called out Wednesday to the Bankers Hill neighborhood near downtown San Diego after receiving a report that a man had forced entry into a home, only to discover themselves embroiled in the middle of something completely different.

According to San Diego police, the original call came into 911 operators about a person trying to enter a home in the 200 block of Ivy Street, near the corner of Albatross Street, through a window.

Responding officers then dealt with the situation as a burglary call, but, having obtained more information, determined the man in the building was, in fact, a tenant and his landlord was in the process of evicting him.

The officers were unable to confirm whether an eviction notice had been served to the man, so they left the scene without further incident.
