At about 3:45am Monday morning, St. John Police received a complaint of a theft from motor vehicle in progress in the 10600 Block of Bailey St., according to Roger Patz St. John Public Information Officer. The homeowner confronted two suspects and when he tried to physically restrain one of the suspects, the second suspect allegedly displayed a firearm and the two fled the area in a white SUV. The homeowner was uninjured, Patz stated.
