BOSTON — Boston Police Department’s District D-4 officers arrested a man late Friday night after responding to a reported burglary in the city’s Back Bay neighborhood.

At about 10:12 p.m., on June 7, officers were dispatched to a residence on Marlborough Street where a woman reported an unknown man inside her home.

The victim, preparing for bed, spotted the intruder, fled downstairs in fear, and believed the suspect had left via the rooftop deck.

She provided a description of the suspect and his backpack.

Officers searched the premises, noting potential escape routes, and extended their search to the surrounding area.

They discovered an open window at a nearby construction site, where they found a backpack matching the description.

Continuing their search, officers located George Correa, 46, of Dorchester, lying in bushes on Marlborough Street with a screwdriver nearby.

He matched the suspect’s description and was detained.

The victim positively identified Correa as the intruder.

Upon his arrest, officers recovered jewelry, money, personal effects belonging to the victim, and 9 suspected oxycodone pills.

The stolen goods were returned to the owner.

Correa is expected to face charges in Boston Municipal Court, including Breaking & Entering of a Building in the Nighttime to Commit a Felony, Possession of a Burglarious Instrument, Possession of a Class B Drug, Larceny from a Building, and Furnishing False ID Information to Law Enforcement.
