A woman fought off a masked man she found inside her residence when she returned to her Bodden Town home on Monday afternoon, March 26.
Police responded to a report of a burglary around 1 p.m. at the premises off Northward Road.
The woman told police that when she returned home, she found her front door disturbed, and when she entered, she encountered a masked male who grabbed her by the arm.
The woman struck the man twice, and the intruder then fled the scene.
The suspect is described as being between 6 feet, 2 inches and 6 feet, 5 inches tall, of slim build with a muscular physique. He was wearing dark-colored clothing with white sneakers and had a stud earring in his left ear.
