San Diego police are looking for a man seen walking in the neighborhood of 10529 Whispering Hills Lane Tuesday around 11 a.m.

A woman called police reporting a man wearing jeans and a gray, zipped sweat shirt and ball cap, approached her as she was walking from her car into the home.

The woman had closed the automatic garage door and the suspect slipped under the door before it closed, holding a knife.

The man demanded she get into a position so that he could tie her up in the garge. He then demanded the code for the home's alarm system, according to police.

The suspect left with a set of keys to the car and the house. Officers are unsure if he left with any other property. They believe he may have been frustrated during his search of the home.

Good, I'm looking for an excuse to send someone to the emergency room after they try to commit fowl play against me.

Yeah, there's never been crime in this world until recently. Notice it coincides with Obama's election? He's the anti-christ!!

I think the stats on this are fairly reliable. Unemployment rising usually is closely followed by crime.

I predict that this will not affect the value of homes in CV.

The values are already going down, so unlikely this incident will cause it to go up.

Martial arts and awareness

If this lady knew a few techniques such as low groin kick the guy would have dropped quickly in pain. Knife wielding assailants are dangerous but can be disabled. However, gun toting criminals are deadly.
