Northeast Philly bedroom intruder believed to have struck again

    Philadelphia police are on the lookout for a late night intruder whom they believe entered the bedroom of a Northeast Philadelphia home for the second time in as many weeks.

    According to NBC10, the most recent incident occurred Friday in the early morning hours when a 25-year-old woman reportedly woke up in the middle of the night to find a stranger in her bedroom.

    The victim told officials that the man was kneeled down beside the bed touching her. When she began to scream he ran away, exiting through what the woman believed to be an unlocked window.

    Police believe this is the same man who entered a different woman’s bedroom last week. That woman, a 27-year-old, reported to police that she woke up and saw a stranger caressing her leg.
