A Carbondale man was arrested last week after a short foot chase with officers, according to the Carbondale Police Department.

Dewayne Perrian, 26, was arrested at about 12:30 p.m. Thursday, after a report to the police said he was attempting to force entry into a residence in the 500 block of South Rawlings.

When officers arrived, they witnessed Perrian running away on foot. After a short foot pursuit, he was caught, arrested and charged with attempted residential burglary. He was then incarcerated in the Jackson County Jail.
