A man woke up Friday morning and found a burglar standing in the living room of his Mendenhall Valley home.
The 50-year-old man told police he saw a masked man as he walked down his hallway around 6 a.m. He approached the burglar to ask him what he was doing, then the burglar threw a crowbar at the resident’s head before taking off on foot, according to a press release by the Juneau Police Department.
Officers responded to the home in the 4000 block of Diane Road and began an investigation but the suspect could not be located. Police said it appeared that the burglar used force to pry the door open into the garage.
There were no injuries and the intruder did not take anything from the home.
The burglar is believed to be a white adult male between 6’–6’2” tall with a thin build. He was seen wearing a black ski mask and a grey and white long sleeved flannel top.
