    A Long Island home invader who crawls into children's bedrooms may have a sexual motive -- and may be getting bolder.

    Nassau County police believe the same man committed at least four overnight home invasions in Great Neck and Kings Point on Sunday and Wednesday, according to Newsday. Authorities suspect he's some sort of thrill-seeker.

    In one case ,he held a wet cloth over a teenage girl's mouth. At another house, the intruder pinched a 5-year-old girl's lips closed. He ran when she screamed. Her mother told the frightened child the man got lost and was in the wrong house.

    In yet another incident, a 61-year-old woman awoke to find a knife at her neck. She broke free and chased him out of the house.

    Police have beefed up patrols in the area and urge residents to lock their doors and windows.
