Police in Anne Arundel County are looking for a man they believe is responsible for a string of home break-ins that occurred early Thursday morning.

In the incidents, women reported finding the intruder in their bedrooms or touching them in a sexual manner.

Just before 3 a.m. Thursday, officers were called to the 7800 block of Centergate Court in Pasadena for a reported burglary. The victim, a 28-year-old woman, said she awoke to find a man in her bedroom, who left after she yelled for him to get out.

At about 3:40 a.m., while police were still searching for the suspect, they were called to the 700 block of 204th Street nearby for report of a burglary and sexual assault. A 56-year-old woman said she awoke to find a man touching her. The man then fled.

The suspect was described in both instances as a man with a thin build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with writing on it. Police believe he targets unlocked residences.

In a third incident, a couple reported a burglary about 6 a.m. and the woman thought someone was touching her in the middle of the night.
