SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Police Tuesday sought a man who broke into a Hillcrest home and fled as officers closed in.

A resident in the 1000 block of Myrtle Way, near Vermont Street, called police shortly before 1 a.m. after spotting a burglar in his or her home, San Diego police Officer Humberto Hernandez said.

Responding officers initially made contact with the suspect through a window, but he got away, Hernandez said.

Hernandez said it was unknown if anything was taken.

Police described the burglar as a thin, white man in his late 20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and carrying a backpack; he was wearing a faded green shirt and plaid shorts.
