A burglary suspect who was chased out of a Pacoima home by a man with a baseball bat surrendered to police after seeing video of himself on news reports.

The 19-year-old man, whose name police withheld, was in a home about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday when he was surprised by the resident and ran out without taking anything, Los Angeles police Capt. Sean Malinowski said.

After home surveillance video of the suspect was broadcast Wednesday, members of the man’s family recognized the man and persuaded him to surrender to police at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Foothill Station, Malinowski said.

Malinowski said the man was facing a possible burglary charge but had not been booked yet.
