RALEIGH — Police are searching for a man they say snuck into the off-campus home of two N.C. State University students and crawled into bed with them.
According to an alert sent out to NCSU students Friday afternoon, the incident occurred in the pre-dawn hours Friday in a residence in the 400 block of Chamberlain Street. Raleigh police were sent to the scene after receiving a call of an intruder.
An unknown man entered the house, which was occupied by two female students. He climbed into bed with both women and rubbed their legs and backs with his hands. According to Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue, the first woman did not fully wake up but felt something touching her. Her roommate awoke fully when the man was in her bed, and the suspect fled the area on foot.
The house was unlocked at the time. Neither woman was harmed, and no weapons were used.
The suspect is described as about 6 feet tall with a muscular build, dark complexion and a short afro. He was wearing a dark-colored T-shirt and jeans. Police have not released other details about his appearance, including his approximate age.
Sughrue said residents should be cautious about sleeping with windows open.
