BYRON, Minn. (FOX 47) -

A house sitter scared away a burglar in Byron over the weekend. 

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called to a home on 3½ Avenue NW around 4 a.m. Saturday, where a 48-year-old man was house sitting for a relative. 

The man heard a noise downstairs and found a man in the foyer. The intruder fled the home. 

Deputies used a K9 to help track the intruder, but had no luck. 

Deputies said doors to the home had been forced open, but fortunately, nothing had been taken.
