    San Diego police are still searching for a burglary suspect after a man woke to find an intruder standing at his bedroom door in Clairemont Saturday morning.

    The incident occurred just before 7:50 a.m. at a home in the 4400 block of Manitou Way, said SDPD Sgt. Ray Battrick.
    According to police, the victim's wife had gone out for a walk, leaving the man to sleep alone when he was awoken after hearing a noise, and discovered an intruder standing in the doorway of his bedroom.
    The intruder reportedly fled when the man started yelling, which alerted a neighbor to call police, said Battrick.

    The suspect is said to be in his 20's, standing about  5 feet 9 inches tall and wearing a gray sweater and black pants at the time of the incident.
