BOULDER, Colo. — A home intruder tried to run away only to then attack a resident late Tuesday night, the Boulder Police Department said.

Police said the resident spotted a man he didn’t know in the first-floor hallway of the home in the 1600 block of Pine Street about 11:15 p.m.

After being confronted, the man tried to run to leave the house but was not successful. Police said the suspect then pulled a knife and attacked the resident, who suffered two superficial lacerations on his right forearm. He did not need medical attention.

The intruder then ran upstairs, onto a deck and down the stairs to the street. He was last seen running southbound on 17th Street.

He is described as a white male, 5-foot-11, 150 to 160 pounds with reddish blonde hair with a receding hairline. He was seen wearing a bright green T-shirt and khaki cargo shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Kara Wills at 303-441-3482 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
