A teen prowler allegedly tried to bite an officer on the arm after being apprehended early Wednesday morning.

Residents in a northeast Springs neighborhood called police after reportedly seeing a male prowling around homes in the area. The homes were located on the 5200 block of Smokehouse Lane, near Oro Blanco and North Carefree.

When responding officers approached the suspect, he took off running, but was caught a short time later. Police say the teen tried to fight the officers off, even trying to bite one before they were able to take him into custody. During the investigation, police reportedly found burglary tools associated with the suspect.

The teen's name has not been released due to his age, but police say he is a 15-year-old male that lives in the area.
