OGDEN -- Police are seeking security camera video from residents in a neighborhood where a woman reportedly confronted a masked gunman in her home earlier this month.
A suspect hasn't been identified in the March 16 home invasion in the 2800 block of Harrison Boulevard, Police Lt. Scott Conley said Monday, and no other incidents involving the intruder have been reported.
Police have stepped up patrols in the neighborhood as a result of the 4 a.m. incident.
Ashley Bills said she was showering in her home when a thin Caucasian man, about 6 feet, 1 inch tall, pointed a black semiautomatic handgun at her face. He was wearing a ski mask, a blue hoodie, a light denim jacket and jeans, she said.
Bills said she pulled the shower curtains closed and shouted to her husband that a man with a gun was in the bathroom. The intruder fled from the bathroom and ran down a hall and into the kitchen, where he escaped through a side door.
Bills' husband chased the man up the street but lost him as he ran through a neighbor's yard.
Bills said police discovered that the intruder had left behind in her home a hydration-type backpack containing a number of items, including a ski mask, a bandanna, gloves and a professional picklock set.
Conley declined to disclose everything that was found in the bag but said he is hopeful it will help identify a suspect. Nothing was stolen from Bills' home.
It hasn't been determined why the intruder entered the residence, Conley said.
"We don't know what his intent is. It's kind of bizarre."
Anyone with information about the incident should call Ogden police at 801-629-8228 or after hours at 911.
