A man aged between 17 and 21 was discovered by the occupier who was woken by a noise in the downnstairs bathroom.
This was around 3.15am at an address in Abbot Road, Bury St Edmunds.
The victim had gone downstairs to investigate and found lights had been turned on in the lounge and the kitchen. As she went to go into the lounge, she came face-to-face with the offender.
He immediately left through the front door and then met a second male waiting outside for him on the pavement. The pair then ran-off towards Winchester Road.

He was wearing a black jacket with a hood, which had at least two stripes down each arm either white or grey in colour, light coloured trousers and white K-Swiss style shoes.
