Police in Cherry Hill, New Jersey say they have identified a burglary suspect, but the man remains at large.

The suspect is 22-year-old Jon D. Padula, of Willis Avenue in Pennsauken. He is wanted for a Wednesday morning burglary on St. Davids Road.

Investigators say it was around 11:16 a.m. when police were called after a homeowner encountered a burglar.

The homeowner and Padula got into a struggle, police say, and Padula allegedly threatened the homeowner with a screwdriver.

Padula escaped the home, got into a red Suzuki passenger vehicle and fled the area.

Anyone having information on Padula's whereabouts is asked to call the Cherry Hill Police Department at 856-488-7828.
