PIQUA — Two similar but unrelated home burglaries were reported over the weekend that involved strangers walking into residences while the residents were home.

On the 1200 block of Park Avenue, a male subject reportedly walked into an unlocked residence at approximately 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. The male subject confronted the resident before leaving, according to Deputy Chief Jason Preston of the Piqua Police Department.

Nicholas Davidson, 32, of Piqua, was charged with fourth-degree felony burglary in connection with this incident. Davidson was arraigned in Miami County Municipal Court on Tuesday.

Davidson was also incarcerated at the Miami County Jail over the weekend before posting surety bond on Tuesday. A pre-trial conference for Davidson is scheduled for Jan. 10.

Unrelated to this incident, Davidson is also facing a charge of fourth-degree felony assault in connection with an incident reported on the 3100 block of North County Road 25-A on Dec. 22, according to court records.

Also unrelated to the first burglary, a similar home burglary was reported later on Sunday evening on Cambridge Street at approximately 7:15 p.m.

A resident reported hearing a noise in the home and later found the front door of the home open. A neighbor reported seeing a female suspect enter and leave the home a couple minutes later, according to the Piqua Police Department.

The female suspect was not located. She reportedly was a young female with her hair in a ponytail who left in a white vehicle.
