TUPELO, Miss (WTVA)--Imagine waking up to find a stranger in your bedroom.

That’s what happened to a Tupelo woman on Labor Day.

And Tupelo Police are searching for the person who did it.

Beth Ann Elzey says she woke up Labor Day morning to find that stranger in her bedroom.

She says the man was staring her in the face when she woke up shortly after three a.m.

Elzey says she refused to follow the demands of the burglar who wanted money or be shot.

Instead, she says she fought the intruder until he ran out of the house.

Tupelo Police are still looking for the suspect.
