FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Fort Worth police are looking for a suspect who broke into the same home twice within 48 hours.

It happened at a home in the 6000 block of Melanie Drive.

He first struck on January 9 at 3:45 p.m.

The homeowner came home in the middle of the burglary and found the suspect – described as a black male, between 20 to 30 years old, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build –  hiding next to an air conditioner unit.

The homeowner moved their car away and saw him running toward a silver or gray “small” car. The suspect pointed a handgun at the homeowner after she approached him. But that didn’t stop the homeowner from  to following the suspect vehicle as it left the residence.

Surveillance footage showed the suspect was inside the house for about an hour; the suspect stole property including electronics and clothing. The suspect was armed with a semiautomatic handgun.

A day later, the suspect entered the house again through damage caused by his first break-in. He saw a female inside the house, pointed a handgun at her, and demanded property. But the home’s security system activated, causing the suspect to flee.

    The home owner need to get herself a gun because if he came back a second time with no fear it’s a very large chance he will be back a third time which could easily turn into a rape and murder. sometimes you can’t depend on the police so you have to learn to protect yourself. Especially if he keep coming back with a gun.
