Wichita police surrounded a house in the 800 block of Gilman in Riverside on Wednesday morning after a call to 911 about a possible burglary.
At least 10 police vehicles responded to the scene. A neighbor called 911 to report the break-in attempt.
Police took three suspects into custody – two men and a woman – with the help of three K-9s.
An officer on the scene observed two people entering the house and there was one person in a car, said Wichita police Lt. L.M. Moore.
Two of the suspects barricaded themselves in the attic and had minor injuries from the K-9s, he said.
Moore said police are unsure whether the suspects are connected with other recent burglaries in the Riverside area, but police will continue to investigate any possible connection.
“It’s all preliminary. At this point in time we don’t have anything to connect these individuals to the past burglaries that have been taking place,” Moore said.
The suspects were taken into police custody for more questioning, he said. The homeowner was not at the home at the time of the break-in.
The neighbor who called police wrote on a neighborhood Facebook page about the incident, saying she saw two men attempting to break into the house on Gilman with a “getaway car” and a driver parked in the alleyway.
“Very good job by the community simply by calling 911 and everyone staying inside of their homes,” Moore said.
