Woman shocked to find burglars still in house

A woman must have thought she was living in a horror film when a burglar accosted her in her San Francisco home Tuesday afternoon.

The victim told cops she walked into her house in the 1000 block of Geneva Avenue around 1 p.m., saw damage to the door of the residence, and noticed other items out of place. When she picked up a phone to call her husband, she was suddenly grabbed by a burglar, police said.

The burglar shouted at two other crooks to run for it, police said. The victim broke free and called 911. The suspects fled.

Cops searched the area around the house with the help of a police dog. The suspects were not found.

The victim described the burglar she encountered as a black man in his late teens, standing about 5-feet, 8-inches tall, weighing 140 pounds and wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, police said.
