Move over, toothless burglar

A burglar dressed in skin-tight leotards and a red bandana went screaming from a Spokane Valley home this morning after being surprised by a 14-year-old occupant.

The boy told officers he was in the shower and heard his dogs barking in the kitchen about 6:40 a.m., police said.

He went to the kitchen, where he met the burglar running up from the basement and out of the house, according to the Spokane Valley Police Department.

The burglar was described as white, in his 40s with thin blond hair.

Officers searched the home and found no sign of forced entry and nothing appeared to have been taken.
