Man Scares Away Would Be Burglar

A man was arrested in the Mary Lake area after fleeing a home he was about to burglarize, according to Redding Police. At 10:48AM Tuesday morning 42-year-old Mitch Parenzin awoke to find a man trying to break into his house. He called 9-1-1 and watched as the man picked up a flower pot outside and broke a window. The man started to climb in the window until Parenzin told him he was on the phone with 9-1-1. That caused the would-be burglar to turn and run away. Redding Police were responding when they encountered 26-year-old Salvatore Bonfiglio about a block away. Bonfiglio, who lives in the same neighborhood, allegedly admitted to breaking the window and trying to get into the house. He was identified by Parenzin and booked into jail for burglary.
