LAPD releases sketches of Los Feliz intruder
The man being sought entered 13 homes and apartments along Los Feliz Boulevard from March 27 through Aug. 17, police said.
“He frequently enters the victim’s residence between the hours of 11 p.m. and 4 a.m.,” according to a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department. “He has taken the victims’ property while they are asleep.”
The man also has made “sexual contact” with some of the victims. When they awoke, he fled, police said.
Police said that the man targets single, working women and that he has stolen computers, money and other valuables, as well as women's underwear.
The suspect is thought to be a 25- to 30-year-old Latino with black hair and brown eyes, about 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 10, with a slim build and broad shoulders. He weighs about 170 pounds.
Composite drawings are based on witness perceptions, and in this case, the man has been described both as being closely shaved and having a thick mustache, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the special assault section of the LAPD's Robbery-Homicide Division during business hours at (213) 486-6910. At other times, the number to call is (877) LAPD-24-7 or (877) 527-3247. Anonymous callers should dial (800) 222-TIPS.
