Police say the woman left the door to her home on Northview Drive unlocked when she left for a short time Wednesday night.
They say she returned and noticed the man, she confronted him and he left right away.
Police say they believe his level of intoxication made him confused and he thought he knew the house.
They say they looked for the man after they were called but couldn't find him.
You're asked to contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers with any information.

A project in Richmond Co. is getting some provincial funding to help fight flooding.
Members of the Little Anse-Sampson's Cove Social Action Centre are getting more than $26,000 dollars for armour stone.
Provincial officials have announced more than $344,000 in funding for six projects through the Flood Risk Infrastructure Investment Program.
The money is to help municipal officials and residents reinforce and stabilize existing streets, rivers, channels and banks against the risk of floods.
The program contributes as much as 50 per cent of a project's costs.
