Woman flees home intruder in Lincoln

October 17, 2012

LINCOLN — A 57-year-old woman was surprised by a man breaking into her Tall Wood Drive home Wednesday morning and quickly fled the dwelling, according to police.
“We believe the suspect was not aware that the homeowner was at home,” Police Chief Brian Sullivan said later of the 9:30 a.m. incident.
The woman fled away from Tall Wood in the direction of nearby Route 295 south and called police regarding the break, Sullivan said.
The suspect, described as a white male about six feet tall and wearing a red shirt, was believed to have left the dwelling at about the same time and ran into woods bordering the nearby highway, Sullivan said. Police units arriving at the location organized a search of the wooded area aided by a Johnston Police Department K-9 unit. The K-9 dog picked up a scent in the woods that led across Rt. 295 to the rest area bordering the Blackstone Valley Bikeway.
