A man has been hospitalised after trying to fight off an intruder in his Adelaide backyard.

The victim was knocked to the ground after going outside to confront the other man who had been inside his Seacombe Gardens shed early on Sunday morning.

The intruder smashed a car window as he fled the scene, with police hunting for a man of African appearance, wearing a black and red hoodie and black baseball cap.
