Police Release Composite of Cat Burglar

The Sacramento Police Department is seeking the community's help to identify the attached composite of a Cat Burglar. 

On January 1, 2010 at 0500 a.m., in the 2700 block of 5th Av, the victim heard her dogs barking in the backyard.  She didn't see anything in the backyard and brought her dogs inside the residence.  After taking a shower, the victim noticed a door in the kitchen area had been closed when she had previously left it open.  She opened the door and discovered the male suspect standing on the other side.  The suspect grabbed the victim, she screamed, pushed the suspect away, and ran towards the front door.  The suspect ran out the back door.  The victim believes the suspect gained entry via a large doggie door.

The suspect is described as a male White 20-25 years old, 5'6" - 5'8", 130 pounds with a skinny build.  He had blue eyes and no facial hair.  He was wearing a blue and grey beanie, light colored clothing, possibly a wind breaker and khaki pants. 

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.  Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
