Police investigate daytime burglary

Updated: Thursday, January 9 2014, 12:08 AM EST

Wheeling police are investigating after a woman woke up to a stranger at the foot of her bed.
Officials say the woman woke up today around 2:00 p.m. after working her midnight shift at her job.
The Wheeling police responded to East 28th Street in Wheeling but the man had already fled the scene.
They say the man broke into the house with a crowbar and attempted to steal the resident's valuables.

As of Wednesday night, the intruder is still on the loose.

Lt. Rob Marriner said, "(She) woke up with a man standing at the bottom of her bed looking at her. Once he realized she woke up, he took off running out the back door. Apparently, he tried to steal a couple of laptops she owned and he dropped those in the kitchen on the way out the back door."

The man police are looking for is described as a white male in his mid-20s about 6 feet tall wearing brown camouflage pants.

The man got away without any items.

This investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or the NEWS9 Lauttamus Security Crime Busters Tipline at 800-862-BUST.
