Telegraph Hill burglar enters through skylight, politely asks to leave 

A Telegraph Hill resident got quite a scare when he spotted an armed burglar hanging from a skylight in his bathroom Wednesday morning, police said.

The victim wasn’t harmed, and even though the burglar was carrying a gun, nothing was stolen during the attempted robbery in the 1400 block of Kearny Street around 4:15 a.m.

Instead, the burglar simply asked the resident if he could leave. The victim opened the front door for suspect, who fled, police said.

The suspect was described as a man in his 30s. There has been no arrest.
