KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say a Ketchikan man stopped for lunch at his home Monday and was confronted by a burglar stealing two of his rifles.

Troopers say the homeowner stepped into his house and saw a man he didn’t recognize carrying a rifle.

The suspect pointed the rifle at the homeowner and ordered him not to move.

The homeowner fled and called troopers.

The suspect ran into woods behind the home.

He was described as about 5-feet-8-inches tall, thin and about 40 years old. He wore a black hat and black jacket.

He stole an SKS rifle and a .22-caliber rifle. The guns were valued at $500.
