GEORGETOWN — Police are continuing their extra patrols in an attempt to catch an intruder who struck again Thursday night, according to Police Chief Whitney Renaker.
Since June, there have now been five incidents, Renaker said, of a male entering homes in the middle of the night but escaping before residents or police can catch him. The two most recent were Monday night and Thursday night.
In at least some of the incidents, victims have reported waking up and noticing the intruder in their bedrooms.
In all of the incidents, there's been no forced entry and nothing has been taken. And although there have been no injuries in any of the incidents, Renaker said, victims have reported some things that he does not want disclosed at this time.
Georgetown police continue to encourage residents to lock their doors and windows, especially at night, and turn on any exterior lights. And, Renaker said, call 911 to report any suspicious activity immediately.
The first incident occurred in June, and Renaker said at that time, that the victim of the first incident identified the man, and police had a suspect. Renaker said Friday that the department does have leads it's chasing down, but there have been no arrests related to these incidents. Earlier this month, he said, there was inaccurate information circulating that the suspect had been arrested, but that was a different incident.
