Two home burglaries were reported on the same block last weekend in northwest suburban Mount Prospect.

Officers were called to the 1800 block of West Willow Lane on Saturday to investigate two break-ins that occurred overnight, according to Mount Prospect police. In each case, the suspect or suspects entered through an unlocked rear door while residents were sleeping.

Nothing was taken in the first burglary, but a purse was apparently stolen during the second, police said. It was found empty nearby.
