Iowa City police charged two local men after they allegedly tried to steal an Xbox from an occupied home.

Morgan Powell, 20, and Albert Black, 19, 2023 Taylor Drive, were charged Nov. 14 with first-degree burglary.

According to complaints, a resident of 320 E. Burlington St. was home when he heard noises inside his apartment. When he went to investigate the noise, the complaint said he found three males in his apartment committing burglary.

When the resident tried to evict the intruders, they allegedly hit him in the nose before leaving the apartment.

The complaint said Powell left his bag and a cell phone at the residence. The intruders also left with the resident's Xbox, which was located later.
