Waking Up To A Burglar

Cookeville police are investigating an incident in which a man awoke in the middle of the night to find a burglar in his home. It happened about 2 am Sunday at an apartment on Summerhaven Drive. The 21-year-old victim told police that he was asleep when he heard his bedroom door open. He awakened to find a man standing in his doorway. The suspect was described as being about 5' 6" tall and wearing a black hat and black shirt. When the burglar realized someone was in the room, he shut the door and ran off -- apparently leaving through the back door. Police say he had gained entry by breaking out a window. Nothing was reported missing.
