Police say a burglar removed an air conditioner to gain access to a residence on the 1900 block of East Bijou Street early Sunday before he was caught.

A resident called officers at 2:26 a.m. and told them he'd been assaulted by a burglar. Officers got a description of the burglar and his license plate number.

They found the car on the 2500 block of East Platte Avenue. The car's driver matched the burglars description and was later identified by the victim as the man who assaulted him, police said.

Miguel Garcia, 34, was arrested on suspicion of burglary, robbery and traffic crimes.

The victim was transported to Penrose Hospital, where he was treated and later released, police said.
