ALBERTSON, Long Island - A 70-year-old woman woke up to find an intruder inside her home.

Joginder Chawla says a noise at her front door in Albertson woke her up just after midnight Saturday. Chawla got up, and was confronted by a man who shoved her, told her to get back in bed, and ran out the front door.

"He pushed me, I fell down. I am very scared, I'm not well," Chawla says.

Fortunately, Chawla was not injured.

Police are still looking for the intruder.
