A 41-year-old man from Cranbourne has been arrested after he woke a family in the dead of night by crawling around in their roof.
Dubbed a ‘cat burglar’ the man woke the family at about midnight on Tuesday 15 August.
The family then ran onto the road on Averne Street to flag down police.
Narre Warren police officers were on patrol on the area when the distressed family caught their attention.
The alleged offender attempted to flee the scene, but was arrested by police nearby a short time later.
He is expected to face the Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 16 August.
