ROSENBERG, TX (KTRK) -- Rosenberg police are looking for a half-naked man who entered a woman's home while she slept and threatened her.

The incident happened early Sunday morning at a home in the 2700 block of Monroe Avenue. The woman said she had left the patio door to her bedroom unlocked.

"He said what he was going to do to me. He said he was going to mess me up," she said.

The woman spoke to us on the condition that we not reveal her identity.

She tells Eyewitness News that she jumped from bed, yelling "No!" at the man while charging at him. According to Rosenberg police, he ran out of the house, heading east toward Austin Street.

She admits she was fearful but told us, "I was born and raised across the tracks in Rosenberg. I was born to be tough."
