Woman says she woke up to a stranger in her home

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police say a 19 year old called 911 after she woke up and found a man in the living room of her Ocean Beach apartment.

Officers are calling this a hot prowl burglary. The man came through the unlocked front entrance around 2:20 a.m. Friday morning.

Once inside, detectives say he started grabbing lap tops and other electronics in the kitchen and living room. Two other people were in the back bedrooms.

After noticing the teen sleeping on the couch, the burglar lifted her blanket. She screamed at the top of her lungs and he ran away. Police say this may be the same suspect wanted for a string of burglaries in the area.

The suspect got away with cell phones, laptops and other electronics and dropped the teen's purse at the front entrance.

The suspect has been described as a thin black male in his 20's to 30's with short hair.
