POWAY, Calif. (KGTV) - The San Diego County Sheriff's Department is looking for two men who broke into a Poway home.

The burglary happened Sept. 16 about 11:45 a.m. at the home in the 15700 block of Riparian Rd.

A 17-year-old boy heard his dog barking and saw two men standing outside the sliding glass door, deputies said.

The teenager then heard glass breaking and saw one of the men inside the home, peeking around the corner of one of the bedrooms. Deputies said the teen confronted the man, who ran away along with the second suspect.

The Sheriff's Department said both men are African-American, about 6'0 tall, in their early 20's, with thin builds.
