A woman reported to Lawrence police early Sunday she awoke to finding a man inside her house in the 3900 block of West 10th Place.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the woman heard footsteps inside her home at 4:45 a.m. and later encountered a man carrying a flashlight inside. The suspect fled on foot, and the woman reported about $1,900 worth of cash and electronics was taken.
Police believe the suspect entered the house through an open garage door, and officers do not have a detailed description of the suspect.
McKinley said police received another aggravated burglary report Monday morning in the 1000 block of Congressional Court. It occurred overnight last Wednesday as the suspect took the victim’s wallet that was left inside an unlocked vehicle in an attached garage. That garage door was also open, he said.
