A knife-wielding burglar escaped with a woman's belongings after breaking into her home in west Salt Lake City.

Police say the man — described as an American Indian, 40-50 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 160 pounds with long, braided hair and wearing a black jacket — entered the house in the 700 South block of Post Street (940 West) about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

He was confronted by the female homeowner and a struggle ensued, during which the burglar picked up a knife. The woman screamed and the intruder fled, taking with him unspecified items of property.

The woman suffered minor bruises in the struggle, police Detective Dennis McGowan said.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call police at 801-799-3000.
