Roseville resident punched by burglar

A Roseville resident was struck in the face during a burglary of his home last week.

A Roseville police advisory newsletter said the resident of Weston Way came home about 5:40 p.m. Thursday to find three people burglarizing his house. One of the burglars punched him in the face before the three intruders fled out the back door.

Officers arrived and searched the area but could not find the burglars. The resident suffered a minor injury from the punch.

Police said the burglars got into the home by breaking a window in the back of the residence. They took figurines, an iPod, a cell phone and a laptop. A Roseville officer recovered most of the items where they were tossed at a nearby greenbelt.

The burglar who assaulted the resident was described as white, about 6 feet tall with a slender build and blue eyes. He wore a black ski mask, long-sleeved brown shirt and blue jeans.

The other two burglars were only described as wearing dark clothing.
