A Cheyenne man was arrested Tuesday after the homeowner he allegedly intended to rob chased him down.

Police spokesman Officer Kevin Malatesta says the incident happened around 12:30 p.m. near Vandehei Avenue and Evers Boulevard.

According to Malatesta, 36-year-old William Cross was chased down by a homeowner who found him in his garage.

Cross didn't steal anything, but Malatesta says "it was pretty apparent that he had other intentions."

Cross was arrested on suspicion of criminal entry and interference, both misdemeanors.  He's scheduled to make his initial appearance in Laramie County Circuit Court Thursday afternoon.
