Someone broke into an apartment at the University Courtyard complex while the resident was home last week.

The break-in happened at 1:15 a.m. Nov. 9 in the 4000 block of Scholar Drive, according to Lt. Fred Nelson, a spokesman for the Newark Police Department.

The victim, a 20-year-old University of Delaware student, was in her bedroom when she heard noises inside the apartment, Nelson said. The student went into the living room and noticed her television, worth approximately $120, was gone.

Police believe the burglar entered through an unlocked living room window, which was found open after the burglary.

Officers searched the area with the assistance of a K-9 partner, but the search came up empty. There is no surveillance footage or description of a suspect.

Anyone with information about the break-in should contact Det. William Anderson at 302-366-7100 ext. 3469 or
