Milton children were chased from their home by an alleged burglar Feb. 21, according to a press release from Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the release, two children were playing outside in a yard on School Street when they were approached by a man that did not live there.
The children immediately went inside to get away from him, the report says, but the suspect allegedly followed them into the home. The children fled the home. There is no indication that either child was assaulted or threatened by the suspect the release states.
Deputies were called, and they located and arrested James Edward Bembo, 36, of Milton. Bembo is charged with felony unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling and misdemeanor larceny petit theft.
He is being held in Santa Rosa County Jail.
