CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Police scoured the area looking for a man who tried to break into a woman's house overnight.

The sound of a low-flying police helicopter was enough to wake even the soundest sleepers early Friday morning in north Charlotte.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police canine units were seen checking the woods behind a row of homes off of Cochrane Drive near Statesville Road.

Neighbors, dressed in bathrobes stood on their porches trying to get a glimpse of what was going on.

Officials said a man tried to break into a house through a side window just after midnight, when the homeowner confronted him.

The man turned around and took off, leaving the homeowner scrambling to call for help.

Crime Scene Investigators came out to collect evidence and talk to witnesses.

There are no reports of any arrests as of yet in this case.
