A 47-year-old man was at his home on the 1300 block of Hampshire Street around 11:30 p.m. Monday when he was surprised by an uninvited visitor, who pushed him and hit him with a rolled-up newspaper.
The victim was able to lock himself in his bedroom and dial 911. Meanwhile, the suspect fled the house, presumably pedaling way on his take, the victim’s bicycle. Police said the suspect was a male between the ages of 20 and 60.
The bicycle was a blue Fuji, police said.
