    On November 17, 2019 at approximately 0901hrs, officers responded to the 700 block of Edinburgh Ct. in regards to a subject attempting to break into the residence. At the time of this incident the residence was occupied. The suspect was attempting to gain entry into the house, through the back door utilizing an ax that belonged to the homeowners.

    The homeowner retrieved a shotgun and confronted the suspect who was later identified as, William Lawrence Cowan W/M (DOB:10/15/1990) 439 W Front St. Apt. C Burlington, NC. The victim pointed the weapon at the suspect as he was still attempting to break into the residence. This caused the suspect to immediately flee the scene on foot, leaving the ax. A perimeter was set up quickly, and Cowan has apprehended approximately two blocks over at Warwick Ct. at Woodland Ave. without incident. The homeowners positively identified Cowan as the perpetrator.
