The Fresno BeeJune 19, 2014 

A 17-year-old boy who was photographed fleeing an attempted burglary Sunday is in custody after Fresno police received tips based on the widely circulated image.

Sgt. Mark Hudson said the suspect could not be identified because he is a juvenile.

The incident took place about noon, when the victim arrived home to find two suspects trying to break in.

Still at large is a Hispanic male who is about 30 years old, Hudson said. Anyone with information about the second suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.
