Police looking for suspect in attempted home invasion case involving elementary school teacher

PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- School officials with the Cave Creek Unified School District say a man tried to invade the home of one of their teachers.

According to a post made by the school district's superintendent on the school district's unverified Facebook page, the incident happened during after school hours on Thursday, in the area of 40th Street and Cascalote. The female teacher, who teaches at Desert Willow Elementary School, was on her way home when she noticed a man walking up her street. As she went to get her children inside, she watched the man walk diagonally towards her house. She immediately called 911 and told the man through the door that she had 911 on the phone. The man then kicked her door and tried to get into the house by the garage door panel.

The man is described by school officials as a white man, possibly in his 30s, between 5'10" to 6' tall and a thin build, with mid-length brown wavy/curly hair, brown beard, and was wearing a long gray t-shirt with possibly a logo on the front, and jeans.
