MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police are investigating a suspicious person they say tried to get into an east side home.

It happened around 5:30 in the morning on December 26th. Police say a 12-year-old girl, living in an apartment on the 200 block of North Thompson drive, was startled out of bed when she heard scratching sounds.

At first she thought their cat was making noise, but then the girl noticed a shadow outside her bedroom window.

She asked who was there, and a male voice told her to open the patio door. The girl immediately woke-up an adult family member.

When police arrived, they discovered that the screen from the girl's window had been ripped off.
