Man sought for breaking into homes, watching women sleep

HOUSTON He's not attacking them or even touching them. Apparently he just watches women sleep.

It's happened twice in just the past few weeks in along Grants Lake Boulevard in Sugar Land.

The victims told police they woke up when they just got a strange feeling, as if someone was watching them. They opened their eyes and someone was.

Last month, within a three day period, police say the man twice illegally entered condos along Grants Lake Boulevard.

"I heard some yelling. It sounded like a man's voice, sounded like a couple getting into a fight," said a neighbor.

A woman, who did not want to be identified, says she heard some of the first incident - an apparent scuffle which police now say was her neighbor scaring the suspect off.

"Yeah, it's bothersome. Definitely," she said.

Investigators say in each case the man entered through an unlocked or open sliding glass door. In the first case, he allegedly sought out a woman in the master bedroom downstairs. In the second, police say he made his way upstairs and located a 14-year-old girl.

"Both of the females were asleep. They woke up to an uneasy feeling and found the man standing there watching them," said Capt. Stuart Denton of the Sugar Land Police Department.

Detectives say the suspect never touched either victim and that he didn't say a word; he only fled when they screamed.

The adult victim was able to help police create a composite sketch of the suspect. He's described as a white or Hispanic man, between 5-foot-11 to 6-foot-2 tall, weighing 200 to 220 pounds, with short dark hair and light skin. He was wearing a black t-shirt.

Police think the suspect may be the same man whose been peeping at women through windows here.

If you have any information that can help police locate that man, you can contact Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS.
