She described the robbers as a thin, roughly 6-foot black man in his 30s with dreadlocks pulled into a ponytail, wearing a black shirt and white tennis shoes, accompanied by a heavyset woman in her late 40s wearing a blue or maroon baggy hooded jacket and shorts.
A neighbor told FOX 5 some people attempted to break into her home two nights ago. She was unsure if the people matched the description of the intruders.
