Police said a burglar stole several electronics from a teenager in an east Nashville home Friday morning.

Officers said the16-year-old boy woke up around 12:45 a.m. to find a masked man standing over him in his home on South 4th Street.

Police said the suspect was attempting to steal a laptop that was under the victim's pillow.

The victim got out of his bed and began fighting with the suspect before chasing him out of the house.

The suspect took two laptops, one desktop computer and two cell phones, according to police.  Because of the amount of property stolen, detectives believe more than one suspect may have been involved.

His parents were home at the time of the incident and were uninjured.
