LODI, N.J. -- A Lodi resident told police a bumbling burglar fell while trying to climb into his bedroom window, then took off just before dawn Monday.

A noise woke him, the Green Court resident told police just before 5:30 a.m.

The would-be burglar saw him, he said, then toppled to the ground and ran.

He described him as black and wearing a dark-colored hoodie, sweatpants and possibly gloves.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation is asked to call Lodi police: (973) 473-7600 .
