A 19-year-old from Attica has been jailed on a felony burglary charge.
Joshua Beck of prospect Street, Attica, is accused of breaking into a home on North walnut Street Tuesday morning.
A woman in the house at the time chased after the intruder later identified by police as Beck.
As the unidentified woman was giving chase she pulled the jacket off the burglar. Police found items taken from the home in the pockets.
Attica Police said the actions of the victim helped to make the arrest but they do not recommend victims confronting unknown suspects on their own.
Beck has been jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail.
