MADISON, Wis. -

A burglar fled through a window when he was spotted by a 27-year-old man living in a home in the 100 block of North Butler Street, according to Madison police.

The victim told police he woke early Wednesday morning to noises coming from his roommate’s room. He said he knew his roommate was gone so he opened the door to his roommate’s room and found the intruder.

The burglar quickly jumped through a window and fled. Police said the burglar didn’t have time to steal anything.

Police found a cinder block outside below the window and found the screen had been removed.

The burglar is described as white, in his 20s, bald, blue or green eyes, an average build and a possible facial deformity. He was wearing a gray hooded-sweatshirt with a design on the front, blue jeans and a blue baseball-style cap worn backwards.
