UNION TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Authorities continue to look for a man police said tried to break into a woman’s Union Township home through a window Sunday afternoon.

Southwest Regional Police Chief John Hartman told Channel 11’s Cara Sapida that 43-year-old Tracy Martin told investigators she caught the man trying to get into her Stone Church Road home through a bedroom window around 4:30 p.m.

“I turned around and looked in my window. There was a tiny opening and I saw feet,” Martin said.

Hartman said Martin pushed the man out of the window, ran downstairs and punched him in the face as he ran away.

“He wasn’t leaving in one piece if I had anything to say for it,” Martin said.

Martin described the intruder as a white man in his late 20s with brown hair, a beard and wearing camouflage clothing.

“I said to my son, ‘Maybe he has an imprint of my ring on his cheek,’” Martin said.

Hartman said Southwest Regional police have increased patrols in the area as authorities continue searching for the man.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact police.
