The suspect got into a home in the 7000 block of Canton Drive in Lemon Grove just before 2:30 AM.

The suspect is described as a black male, 20‐25 years old, standing about 5’7”, with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie and black gym pants. He may have arrived at the home on a skateboard so he could leave from the area.
