Madison Police Chief Shon Barnes said officers found evidence someone had actually tried to break into the apartment.
Madison.com reports that Barnes also pointed out that there had been “general disturbance” calls in the apartment complex before, but he wasn’t sure if those calls were ever related to the apartment in which the alleged intrusion has occurred.
