Woman interrupts burglary in Pasadena

PASADENA — A woman with a baby interrupted a burglary at her home Wednesday and was pushed and had her hair pulled one of the fleeing burglars, police said.
The incident occurred about 5:40 p.m. at an apartment in the 100 block of South Madison Avenue.
The woman was walking home with her baby in a stroller when she saw to burglars on the balcony of her apartment, Pasadena police Lt. Randell Taylor said.
The woman yelled out, and the men ran from the apartment toward the woman, the lieutenant said.
One of the burglars pushed the woman and pulled her hair, while the other dropped and damaged a computer they had taken from the home, Taylor said.
The woman was not injured, and the burglars are believed to have left empty-handed, he said.
Taylor added that the burglary appeared random, and the thieves likely took advantage of an unlocked door or window to enter the home.
The burglars were described as Latino men in their mid-20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, of medium build, with short hair and clean shaven faces, Taylor said.
