Police say a man suspected of breaking into a Cary home and then attacking a witness has been captured in Durham.

Twenty-seven-year-old Anwar Antuan Overby was arrested Tuesday evening.

Cary police say Overby was spotted breaking into a home on Park Crest Drive in late June.

Detectives say Overby chased down the neighbor who saw him, knocked her to the ground, and took her phone.

The woman spent a day in the hospital with serious hand injuries.

Police say Overby has committed similar crimes before. He's a habitual felon charged with three break-ins in Durham last year.
