A Beaufort woman was abruptly alerted to find a masked burglar robbing her home early Wednesday, November 5.

After hearing the hubbub in her home the woman found the burglar wearing a bed sheet over his head. Her son removed the sheet from the intruder not expecting to find a mask beneath the sheet. The mask resembled the masked worn by the villain in the Scream trilogy.

Her son chased the man around Beaufort, but eventually lost him. No one was hurt in the process.

Check out The Beaufort Gazette for the story.
