A Hidden Hills homeowner was surprised by an armed man when she exited her residence to retrieve items from her vehicle. The homeowner had just unloaded some items from her vehicle and was returning to get a second load from her vehicle that was parked in her driveway. Once outside, she discovered a black male, wearing dark clothing and a dark hoodie, inside her vehicle. When she walked toward her vehicle, the suspect exited her vehicle with what the homeowner described as a “long barrel gun”. As the homeowner began to retreat, she state the armed intruder approached her fidgeting with the weapon. That time was all that was needed for the homeowner to make it back inside her residence. Once inside she locked the doors and immediately called 911.
