Guelph police say an 85-year-old woman is shaken but not injured after she confronted a burglar inside her north-end home on Monday.
The woman woke up at around 5:30 a.m. to the sound of a window being smashed at her home near Woodlawn and Victoria roads, police said in a news release.
The service explained that she left her bedroom and found a man coming out of her bathroom carrying a tire iron.
Police were dispatched but the suspect ran out the front door, which had its window broken.
Officers did not make an arrest and no theft was reported.
