Two Poplar men are charged with breaking into a Douglas County home on Saturday.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said they arrested 20-year-old Alexander Rohling and 18-year-old Austin Clement.

Authorities said they received a call about a break-in around 1:45 Saturday afternoon at a home on County Road P and Olson Road between Poplar and Lake Nebagamon.

Two teens were babysitting at the home when they heard someone kick down the door, authorities said. The two hid in bathroom and called 911.

When authorities arrived, they found footprints heading away from the house. Authorities said a deputy chased a suspect down. The second suspect was taken into custody at a nearby residence a short time later.
