Police: Burglar targeted Milford home

A Milford resident awoke early Wednesday morning to the sounds of a burglar inside his home on Calf Pen Lane, police say.

The victim found a man inside the house and tried to restrain him, police say. The suspect reportedly brandished a knife before escaping.

Police say they're looking for a white, thin male suspect between 20 and 30 years old and about 5 feet 6 inches tall.

Neighbors say the burglary attempt is not characteristic of the neighborhood.

Police are asking residents to keep their doors and windows locked.

Anyone with information is asked to call Milford police.
