Man wakes up to find home being burglarized

A Goshen man woke up to a burglary in progress at his home around 5:20 Wednesday morning, city police reported.

A resident in the 500 block of River Avenue told police someone entered his home through a downstairs window while he was asleep. He thought he heard something and went to look.
