A 15-year-old Delaware County student came home from school Wednesday, May 11, and was surprised to find a man in her house, county officials say.

Sheriff's deputies are looking for a man they say was inside the house on Open Bay Court in the Meadows at Cheshire subdivision in Berlin Township.

The girl said she briefly struggled with the man, then got away and ran to a neighbor's home.

The sheriff's office is investigating whether it was a case of a home burglary or whether the girl was an intended victim of an abduction. She wasn't injured, officials said.

The assailant was described as a very thin white man who was wearing a red hoodie and a black ski mask. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 740-833-2800.
