A downtown resident was awakened early Sunday morning as a burglar reached into her home through a window screen he had just cut. The victim had left a window cracked for fresh air, and grabbed onto the criminal's arm. This scared the intruder. He pulled his arm back and fled. A short time later, another building resident returned home to find his unit burglarized. Electronics and money were among items taken. He told police that he had left a door unlocked. A police dog arrived to track the burglar, but no suspect was found.
