WILMINGTON, Del. (WPVI) -- An intruder accidentally gave police a good look at her face while allegedly breaking into a Delaware home last week.

It happened on Wilmington's Westside last Wednesday morning.

The homeowner says one of his stolen items got caught in the door, as the woman tried to escape forcing her to turn around and face a surveillance camera.

Police said the accused burglar reportedly got into the house by pushing out a window fan.

She took a number of items, including an iPad, jewelry, and wine coolers.

If you recognize the suspect, contact Wilmington police.
