CAIRO — Sheriff investigators were looking for the man who entered a home just south of Cairo to take a purse containing money and credit cards.

The burglary happened at 8:41 p.m. Sunday in the 5300 block of Ottawa Road just south of State Road, said Allen County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jimmy Everett.

The man, described as 5 foot 10 and weighing 170 pounds, entered through a window and was confronted by someone at the home. He shoved that person away and ran out of the house with the purse, Everett said.

The person at the home was not seriously injured, Everett said.
