A Dale City resident caught four men in the act of breaking into his home, but the suspects are still at large, Prince William County Police said.
The homeowner reported Thursday at 1:32 a.m. that he had observed four unknown men behind his home on the 14300 block of Westminster Lane. He then ran to a neighbor's house, where he called the police.
"The men forced entry into the residence through a rear sliding glass door which had been broken out," Officer Jonathan Perok, a spokesman for the police department, said in a press release. "Police arrived and checked the residence. No suspects were located."
A gaming console and game, valued around $300, were reported missing.
