This morning, at 5:30 a.m., deputies received a call reporting an intruder in a home in the 1200 block of Calle Colnett in San Marcos.

“The unknown male intruder fled from the bedroom of the caller's young daughter after she screamed,” according to Lieutenant James Bolwerk, in a statement released today, July 19, 2013.

“Deputies from the Sheriff's San Marcos Station responded and searched the area for the suspect, but were unable to locate him,” the lieutenant stated.

“In order to reduce the opportunity for this type of crime, the Sheriff's Department recommends residents secure all exterior doors and windows while members of the family sleep.”

Investigators are asking anyone with information about the stranger who intruded into the San Marcos home this morning to call 858-565-5200 or 888-580-8477.

“You can remain anonymous and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest,” according to the lieutenant.

Both the San Diego County Sheriff and Escondido Police suggest a brazen intruder is scaring citizens in North County.
Escondido Police issued a new warning on July 25, 2013. Lieutenant Neal Griffin stated that after 2 a.m. on July 24, a man reached through an open window and “touched a woman’s body while she was asleep in bed with two young children.” This newest scare happened on Magnolia Place, and “is being treated as a part of this ongoing series,” the lieutenant reported. “The point of entry has consistently been an unsecured door or ground level window,” he stated. He advised that citizens should consider installing motion detectors connected to outside lights, or keeping an outside light on all night.
