LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say a woman managed to flee her apartment after she woke to find a prowler standing at the foot of her bed.

Lt. Joseph Sanchez says the woman had a brief conversation with the man in her bedroom at around 3 a.m. in Venice.

Sanchez says the woman believes the man was holding a knife. When the man went into the kitchen, the woman was able to run outside to a neighbor’s apartment to call police.

The suspect was gone when officers arrived. But City News Service reports police later detained someone and investigators are trying to determine if he is the suspect.
