An elderly Tuggerah woman has scared off a would-be burglar after waking to find the intruder in her house early this morning.
Police say the man fled after being confronted by the 84-year-old, who told him to get out of her house on Gavenlock Road around 4:00AM.
It's not known if he took anything at this stage, but it’s believed he may have tried to break into several other houses in the area as well.
The forensics crew will set up there later this morning.
Call Crime Stoppers or Wyong Police if you can help out with info.
