A Grover Beach woman was startled awake late one night this week to find a burglar standing in her bedroom.
Police say that Esteban Zuniga entered a home in the 700 block of Trouville Avenue at 11:36 p.m. Wednesday and went into the woman’s bedroom. When she awoke, he confronted her and kept her from leaving.
Her sister overhead the commotion and called police, causing the 29-year-old Zuniga started to run away from the house.
Grover Beach officers who had been called saw Zuniga and were able to give chase and catch him.
Never miss a local story.
Zuniga was arrested on suspicion of burglary, false imprisonment and resisting arrest. He was booked into County Jail.
