According to reports, Browne awoke to discover the male – dressed only in a pair of boxer shorts and a white vest – in her house.

The intruder, believed to be in his early 20s, was inside a bedroom; and after hearing the woman call out to her son, he ran through another bedroom and made good his escape.
