Kalamazoo public safety officers responded Thursday night following a report that someone with a handgun was seen opening a present outside. Police said the witness confronted the suspect, who picked up a bag of Christmas presents and fled on foot.

An officer spotted the suspect, who was caught while trying to scale a fence. Investigators said he had a fake gun and the bag of presents.

The boy is being held on suspicion of home invasion, pending a review by prosecutors.

Police determined that the presents came from a home near where the boy initially was spotted. All the missing presents were returned.
