Detectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station are investigating a report of a residential burglary at 2:45 a.m. Monday in the 19000 block of Newhouse Street in Canyon Country.

The suspect reportedly forced entry into a residence through a window and the residents awoke to find him standing in their bedroom. The residents ran from the house and neighbors called the Sheriff's station.

Deputies arrived moments later, contained the area and searched for the suspect, but were unable to locate him.

The suspect is described only as a male, 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds.

No one was injured.

"Residents in the area should take extra precautions, ensure their doors and windows are locked when they go to bed at night, keep outside lighting on, and immediately report the slightest indication of suspicious conduct to our station," said SCV Sheriff's Station Captain Anthony La Berge. "We have directed increased patrols into the area and will be very proactive in our enforcement efforts."

Anyone with information that may lead to the suspect's arrest may contact detectives at (661) 255-1121.
