The burglary happened on the 1600 block of Irving Street NW about 10:15 a.m. Tuesday.
The victim was in her bedroom when she heard a “commotion” downstairs, according to authorities. She went to investigate and found a man in her house.
The intruder then grabbed the woman by her shoulder and forced her into her bedroom, slamming her down on her bed.
“This was suppose to be a regular burglary,” the man said, according to a police report. “Nobody suppose to be home!”
The man then ordered the woman to wipe down a television he tried to steal before she encountered him. He took her iPhone soon after and told her not to call police, while grabbing his waistband as if he had a handgun there.
“I can’t believe you didn’t hear me kick in your door,” the man said, according to a police report. “If I were one of my cousins, you’d be dead right now!”
The intruder then told the woman to go into a bathroom and stay there for 10 minutes. He soon after left the home with five MacBook Pro laptop computers, valued at more than $7,000.
The woman eventually fled the house to call police.
Authorities haven’t released a suspect description.
