Sexual Prowler, Burglar Sought

Los Angeles: Police are asking for the public's help in identifying and locating a sexual prowler who burglarized a woman's Van Nuys home and sexually assaulted her in the early morning hours on Thursday, June 28, 2007.

The incident happened around 4:00 a.m., in the area of Sepulveda Boulevard and Vanowen Street.

After entering through an unlocked sliding glass patio door, the man created an opening in the screen door, then reached in and unlatched it.

According to investigators, a woman, asleep in her bed, screamed after she was awoken and realized that she was being sexually assaulted. The attacker fled on foot from the location.

"The weather is getting warmer and people have the tendency to leave their windows and doors opened and unlocked. By doing this, you give an intruder easy access to your home. At night, keep your windows and doors locked and utilized other methods to keep cool" said Detective Alvarado.

Police described the suspect as being possibly Hispanic or Black, 5'6" to 5'8" tall with a stocky build.

Investigators have a few leads and are asking anyone with information to call Detectives Nancy Nelson or Jesse Alvarado, Robbery Homicide Division, Rape Special Section, at 213-485-2921. On weekends or during off-hours call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
