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

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.
