The Iowa City police are investigating a string of burglaries.

Reported to police on July 16 and Sunday, the four apparent burglaries took place at residences in the 400-600 blocks of South Johnson Street, South Van Buren Street, and South Dodge Street between 11:00 p.m. and 3:30 the next morning.

Officers said one man heard a knock at his apartment door and when he didn't answer, two men attempted to force the door open. Only when he announced his presence did the intruders leave, according to police.

Another resident returned home to find a man climbing out a broken window in his living room, police said.

Witnesses described the suspects to police as a stocky white male, 5-8, with brown hair and a black shirt. The other man, an African American, is believed to be stocky and 5-8, with a red shirt and a white bandana covering his face.

Iowa City Area CrimeStoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspects.
