    The victim told San Diego County sheriff’s deputies that she was coming home to her apartment near Bonair Road in Vista around 2 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 9.

    As she opened the door, a man walked up behind her and held what she thought was a gun to her head.

    The man told her to get inside the apartment and forced her into the kitchen, deputies said.

    The victim told officials the man attempted to blindfold her.

    Deputies said there was a struggle and the suspect ran from the scene.
