SAN DIEGO — A dog bit a masked intruder at a home near East Village Wednesday.

Two men wearing dark clothing and masks entered the house, off E Street and 28th in the Golden Hill area, through an unlocked door around 6 a.m.

The homeowner’s dog bit one of the men before they ran off, San Diego Police Department said. It wasn’t immediately clear if they took anything from the house.

The suspects were both described as roughly 6-foot-2, with one wearing a black long-sleeved shirt, black pants and a black mask and the other wearing a hoodie and a gray mask.

The thieves left in a vehicle, described only as a black car, San Diego police public-affairs Officer Billy Hernandez said.

Detectives from the San Diego Police Department’s robbery division were investigating the heist.
