Man injured in scuffle with intruder

An Ashland man suffered minor injuries in a tussle with a man he found burglarizing his apartment when he returned home Sunday night, police said.

Ashland police are searching for the burglary suspect, who was disrupted by the resident of an apartment in the 100 block of Lincoln Street at about 11:25 p.m. Sunday, deputy police chief Rich Walsh said.

The resident and the suspect fought, but the suspect overpowered him and ran away, Walsh said.

"He put up a good fight," Walsh said of the resident. He noted that the suspect might also have minor injuries from the scuffle.

The alleged burglar, who apparently entered through an unlocked front door, fled with the victim's wallet and an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

He is described as a white man in his early 20s with short, dark hair. He was described as about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 190 to 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing dark, possibly denim shorts, a white T-shirt with black writing on the front, and bright white sneakers.

The case remains under investigation and police ask anyone with information about it to call detective Steve Brown at 482-5211.
