The Richland County Sheriff's Office says about 12:30 p.m. a man was knocking on the door, and eventually entered the house by cutting a screen on a window that was open. The man was apparently scared off by the people inside the house at the time and left the home.

The suspect is described as a white man with a skinny build, about 5'9," with short blonde hair wearing a baseball cap, red shirt and blue jeans. He was driving a black SUV, possibly a Tahoe.
