TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department is warning people to be on the lookout for a man who impersonated a cable company employee in an attempt to get into a woman's home on the south side.

According to police, the suspect is a white man in his early 30s, 5'8" tall, 160 to 170 pounds with sandy blond hair.

He was wearing a tan shirt and tan pants and had an ID card on a lanyard. "COX Employee" was printed on the card, but there was no name or picture on it.

Police said the man entered a residential backyard in the 1700 block of East Saint Bernadine Street at about 8:30 a.m. today. The woman who owns the residence confronted him and he forced her into the home near East 36th Street and South Kino Parkway.

The man ran away after a struggle with the woman.

Police encourage you to ask for a picture ID from anyone representing a utility company or any other business while at your home. If you are still suspicious about that person, call the business to verify their employment or call 911.

Anyone with information about this incident or suspect is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
