OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) -- The Clackamas County sheriff's office says a couple fought off a burglar who entered their home Tuesday night at Beavercreek.

The sheriff's office says a 63-year-old man was sitting in his home when the intruder walked through an open door. They began to fight and the homeowner called for his wife to get a gun.

When she came into the room with a gun, the burglar, a white man about 6 feet tall with a stout build, punched her and ran off.

Deputies searched the area with a dog but couldn't find the suspect who apparently drove away.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office's confidential Tip Line at 503-723-4949, or by using the online e-mail form.
