Officers with the Temecula Police Department responded at 7:30 p.m. to a reported burglary at a residence in the 42000 block of Agena Street. A citizen witnessed a black male adult, who was unfamiliar to the neighborhood, carrying a large television out of the front door of his neighbors’ home, according to police.
The citizen observed the male place the television in a waiting vehicle and drive away.

Paul Keller, 23, of San Jacinto was apprehended after a brief struggle when officers found him jumping a fence from a back yard. The Murrieta Police Department assisted by responding with a K9 officer, which was utilized in apprehending 19-year-old Demaggio Wright, a Perris resident.
Wright sustained a bite from a police service dog after resisting officers and was treated for his injuries at a local hospital, police said. There are no outstanding suspects.
All stolen property items, which included various electronics and jewelry, were recovered from the suspects. Porter, Keller and Wright were booked at the Southwest Detention Center. Keller also was wanted for an outstanding arrest warrant from a previous burglary charge.
