DeLAND, Fla. - Police have released a composite sketch of an armed man who broke into a home in DeLand.

A 58-year-old woman at 510 W. Minnesota Ave. called around 3:45 p.m. Thursday about an encounter with the armed masked intruder inside her home.

The man may have stealthily forced entry into the home before seeing the woman and pointing a gun at her, according to police.

The woman was unaware the man was inside her home until the encounter. Police said no demands were made.

The woman wasn't injured and it appears nothing was stolen. Authorities said the man was gone when police arrived.

Police described the man as white, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 210 pounds.

Anyone with information about the armed home invasion is asked to call Detective Jamie Brazeau at 386-626-7428 or Crime Stoppers at 888-277-8477. Police said the caller may remain anonymous.
