A woman came home to find two alleged burglars in her backyard — one of which told her he just stopped to urinate, according to a Columbus Police report.

The 42-year-old woman came back to her 4000 block Oates Avenue home at about 6:20 p.m., and found two men poking about her back yard. One, described as a slim black teen wearing all black, jumped her fence and ran toward Sixth Avenue.

The other, a slim, 5-foot-10 black teen with a short afro and medium complexion, told her he only stopped in her backyard to urinate and then walked toward Sixth Avenue. He was described as wearing a black sweat shirt with a red and white logo and black pants.

The woman found her screen door opened, but undamaged.
