Orlando Police are searching for a brazen criminal with a bizarre approach to taking what doesn't belong to him -- carrying on a conversations with victims and even crawling into bed with them, before he steals their stuff.
"Whoever's breaking in the apartments also confronts them when the break in the house," said a woman who didn't want to be identified.
Police released a composite sketch of the suspect who they say is targeting women -- striking between the hours of 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. by breaking in through windows.
"In several of the cases, he's actually had physical contact with the person inside who was sleeping and then actually spoken to them which we find unusual so we want to do the best we can we want to get the composite photo out there," said Cpl. David Allmond of the Orlando Police Department.
A neighbor says the thief forced open her window, but luckily her family was gone went it happened.
"My window, they didn't break it but they forced it open, they took my jewelry and the car keys, they didn't take anything major but I think they were planning to come back," she said.
Officers say he's hitting up apartments near Curry Ford Road and Semoran Blvd and he's becoming more and more brazen.
"I have to sleep somewhere else and I'm going to go to the office now, see if they'll bolt my windows or something, because it's just not safe," said the woman.
Orlando Police say they're trying to figure out the exact number of victims -- at this point they can only say there's been several.
"I live alone, so me coming in or me being sleep and somebody coming in my house I would want to know at all times," said Pamela Santiago who lives in the area where the burglaries are happening.
