Intruder, a burglar, and attempted break-in keep Manchester police busy
Police said Sheila Nicholas was asleep in her first-floor bedroom located off the kitchen of her home when a bright light woke her at 11:20 p.m. and she saw the man.
She yelled for him to get out of her house, and police said the man fled out the rear door, heading east in the alley to a waiting vehicle, which drove away.
Nicholas could not give a description of the vehicle, but she described the intruder as a white man, about 20 years old, 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall with a slim build and brown hair in a buzz cut. He wore a red T-shirt and dark pants.

A blaring car stereo led to the arrest of a driver on several charges Tuesday including possessing a controlled drug.
About noon Monday, mountain bicycle patrol officers were at Pine and Valley streets when they heard a loud stereo and saw a car driving in their direction.
They signaled for the driver to pull over. The man turned on his directional signal, indicating he was going to comply, but police said he sped off, heading north on Pine Street and then turning east on Auburn Street.
Officers radioed dispatch and a patrol supervisor quickly spotted the car parking on Auburn Street, near Union Street, and detained the driver, identified as Julius Lane, 33, of 180 Beech St., as he got out of it.
Lane was arrested for operating a motor vehicle after suspension, second offense, and possession of two grams of suspected cocaine, which police said were found on him when he was searched at the police station.
A South Willow Street restaurant was burglarized early Tuesday morning, while about 90 minutes later police discovered an attempted burglary at a downtown restaurant.
Police said a burglar alarm sounded at 12:20 a.m. at Giovanni's Roast Beef and Pizza, 379 S. Willow St.
Someone threw a large rock through a front window to enter the business and then stole cash and change from a tip jar on the counter, and more change from the office area, police said.
About 2 a.m., mountain bicycle patrol officers discovered front doors propped open with a piece of wood at 917 Elm St. The doors lead into a vestibule and two other doors for Ate Doors Down and the Peking Garden.
Police said there was fresh damage to the door frame of Ate Doors Down, an apparent attempt to burglarize the restaurant, but entry was not made.
