The 30-year-old woman was asleep when the man slipped into her third-floor apartment. She woke up to find him exposing himself, police said. He tried to get into bed with her but she screamed for her roommate, who came face-to-face with the man before he dashed from the building.
The surveillance video shows him running towards Irving Avenue, where he takes a left.
During a press conference Thursday, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said police are working to create a sketch of the suspect. He said
The woman was not hurt, but neighbors said the home invasion has them unnerved.
“It’s shocking,” Bushwick resident Al Schwartz said. “Very, very shocking. There’s no words.”
