SIERRA MADRE — Two burglars fled Thursday after confronting a resident inside a Hermosa Avenue home, police said.
The crime took place between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. in the 100 block of South Hermosa Avenue, Sierra Madre police Sgt. Joe Ortiz said.
Two intruders entered a home through an unlocked door, apparently unaware that a resident was inside, the sergeant said.
“They confronted the resident who was still home,” Ortiz said. “When that happened, they ran out the door.”
It was undetermined Friday what, if anything, had been stolen from the home.
Police described the intruders as a Latino man in his mid- to late 20s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 220 pounds, and a Latino man between 18 and 20 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and 130 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call Sierra Madre police at 626-355-1414.
