    A big cat, possibly a bobcat, smashed through a window of a Southern California home Tuesday, the homeowners told police.

    The Brentwood husband and wife locked themselves in a bedroom to avoid the animal, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. It apparently leaned against the sliding glass door, causing it to shatter, police said.

    The animal briefly stayed inside the residence before disappearing outside and back into the night. 

    LAPD showed up to the couple's home on Old Ranch Road and searched the area with flashlights and a shotgun, but the big cat was no longer seen on the property.

    Editor's Note: Initial reports indicated the animal was a mountain lion. The story has been updated to indicate it was likely a bobcat.
