Glendora woman confronts knife-wielding intruder in her home

GLENDORA — A woman came home from work Wednesday afternoon to find herself face to face with a knife-wielding man in her own house, police said.
The woman arrived home about 1:15 p.m. in the 1400 block of East Linfield Street, Glendora police Lt. Joe Ward said.
She noticed a silver, Ford F-150 pickup truck with a crew cab and a matching silver bed cover, the lieutenant said.
When she entered her house, she saw a burglar emerge from her bedroom carrying a pillowcase full of her property, including a laptop computer and jewelry, Ward said.
The intruder brandished a knife and said something like, “I just want to leave,” before dropping the pillowcase and fleeing from the home, Ward said.
The woman was unharmed.
Police described the burglar as a clean-shaven Latino man in his 20s, wearing a white T-shirt, shorts and a black baseball cap.
Anyone with information is asked to call Glendora police at 626-914-8250.
