A 41-year-old Ainslie man is facing the Magistrates Court today after police caught him inside a home allegedly committing a burglary early this morning.

About 1.45 am police were called to a home in Ainslie after the home owner reported someone inside her residence. The home owner heard a window being opened and locked herself in the bathroom to contact police.

Within minutes police were at the home, cordoning the house and when the alleged offender refused to come out, police entered and found the man hiding behind a door in the laundry.

He was arrested and charged with burglary, going equipped for theft and attempted theft.
