Halifax - Three women in Halifax, Nova Scotia awoke to find a man standing next to their beds and watching them Sunday morning. The women weren't hurt during the incident.
Halifax Regional Police said an intruder slipped into an apartment in the city’s south end around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, and watched them while they slept.
“It is also believed he touched two of them in a sexual manner,” said a police report. “Based on the investigation, it is believed the suspect entered the apartment by removing a screen to an open window.
“Once inside, he went into the three separate bedrooms where the women were sleeping. The assaults consisted of inappropriate touching of a sexual nature.”
The women were not physically injured during the incident.
The man, who left the property on foot, is described as white, 20-25 years of age, 5'10", of medium build, and with dark hair. He was wearing blue jeans, a grey sweater and had a neck warmer over his face.
Other sleep watching incidents have taken place in Halifax earlier this year, but touching was not involved in most of them.
"This one certainly has escalated,” CBC News quoted Const. Brian Palmeter, of the Halifax Regional Police, as saying. “We had at least one other case where the sheets were removed, but in this case where the girls were actually touched, it does raise the severity of it. And it's something that we're alarmed by.”
