GLIDE, Ore. - Two Glide women were awakened Wednesday morning to find an intruder in their home. They confronted the intruder who left before calling police. 

Dispatchers received a call around 6:00 am on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 of an intruder inside of a home in the 1900-block of Glide Loop Drive. The caller stated she had woken up to find an unknown adult male in her kitchen. She and another adult female in the home confronted the male who left.
