    A male suspect was spotted climbing the fence of an Encino home owned by Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig just two days after it was burglarized.

    Surveillance footage shows the man scaling the fence and making his way onto the property before leaving without entering the house itself.

    Two days earlier, a pair of suspects "ransacked" Puig's home, causing as much as $10,000 in property damage after dragging a safe from the second floor down the stairs, according to the LAPD. It is unclear whether Thursday's trespassing may be related the Tuesday's burglary, though police believe the burglary suspects may have been involved in yet another attempt to rob the house that occurred in August.

    When asked about the incidents, Puig said he's not allowing them to distract from his goals for the Dodgers' season.

    "There's nothing I can do right now," he said. "I keep going to practice and doing my best for my team to make the playoffs and make the World Series. That's my focus right now and I'm not worried about these problems happening at my house."
