A man broke into a southwest suburban home early Wednesday and touched a woman while she was sleeping, before she awoke and he ran away.
The woman told police she was asleep in her bedroom at her home in the 24600 block of John Adams Drive in Plainfield when she woke up to someone touching her upper body over her clothing, a statement from Plainfield police said.
When she screamed to alert other people in the home, the man ran away, police said.
Police do not know how the suspect got into the home, and could find no sign of forced entry.
The woman described him as a 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, and wearing a hat. A second person who saw him run out of the house through the garage said he was wearing a grey shirt and baggy pants.
Anyone with information should call Plainfield police at (815) 267-7215.
Police are encouraging residents to lock their doors and make sure their garage doors are closed.
