Alex Trebek injured chasing burglar

The host of ‘Jeopardy!’ Alex Trebek was injured on Wednesday morning as he chased a burglar from his San Francisco hotel room.

Trebek, 71, snapped his Achilles tendon as he pursued the man, and injured his other leg when he fell down the stairs. Trebek said the thief stole cash as well as a bracelet that was a gift from his late mother. 

Lucinda Moyers, 56, was arrested on Wednesday. The cash and bracelet haven’t been found but other items were recovered, police say.

Trebek will undergo surgery in San Francisco on Friday and is expected to be in a cast for six weeks.
