A terrifying encounter for a Kitchener resident who was confronted in his apartment by a man wielding a baseball bat.  

Waterloo Regional Police say it happened just after three yesterday afternoon on Avalon Place in the Strasburg and Ottawa area.

Police say the tenant fled unharmed, but the bandit stuck around, stole some jewellery and then fled on foot.

He’s described as white, around 45 years of age, 5′ 11″, 200 pounds and balding with short grey hair on the sides.
