Bruce EngelbergA Reston man who was awakened by his barking dog Tuesday night found out the pooch was alerting him to a possible intruder.

Fairfax County Police responded to a residence in the 1700 block of Lake Shore Crest Drive at about 11:26 p.m. Tuesday. The homeowner reported that after his dog woke him, he discovered a window had been raised and its screen had been removed. He then said he saw a man walking away from his house toward the nearby lake.

From FCPD:

“Officers set up a perimeter and K9 established a track to a nearby building. The suspect was seen on surveillance video and was eventually located and identified.”

The suspect was identified as 43-year-old Bruce Engelberg, of no fixed address. Engelberg was taken to the Adult Detention Center and charged with attempted burglary.

    According to Mike M this guy just arrived to this country.

      Yes, Engelberg probably from Germany. Now, if this poor individual had not lost touch with his Sexualbegleiter we would not be in this predicament!!!!

      Anyone want to step up? Mike?

        Geez. I think you’ve read too much into this story. Where is your head? By the way, hipster, not everyone swings the way you do.

        • “Hipster

          Thanks for the confirmation – we dont know each other…

    • Mike M

      I never said that. He looks like he could have been born here. That’s true for about 20% of the crime in this area.

      • Chuck Morningwood

        Yeah I figured you just look at people by race or skin color to determine if they are from this country

        • Mike M

          No. That would be harder. But when I look at the name and it reeks of a fresher source for immigrants, then I make a safe bet.

          Isn’t that the problem with the majority of liberals? Just “figuring” things out about people?

          I don’t know…Just figured.
