— Modesto police are looking for a burglar who crawled through the window of a bedroom in which the resident was sleeping Thursday afternoon.

At about 4:45 p.m., the suspect entered the home in the 200 block of Lois Avenue and started collecting jewelry, said police spokeswoman Heather Graves.

The homeowner awoke to the ruckus in his bedroom and was startled to find the burglar.

The burglar told the victim he wasn't going to hurt him, but the victim offered him money anyway, according to Graves.

The burglar took the money and the jewelry and ran from the home.

He is described as a black man in his 20s with a small build. He was wearing a T-shirt, gloves, shorts and tennis shoes.
