Woman wakes up to find a stranger in her bed

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) --- A 44-year-old woman called police after finding a stranger in her bed with his arm wrapped around her.

The incident took place Friday morning on Fordem Avenue.

According to the incident report, the woman yelled and helped assist the man out of her apartment.

The woman says the man was drunk or high on drugs and thinks he might have identified himself as "Dave."

Police say it appears the intruder entered through an unlocked window.  No items were taken and the woman was not injured or assaulted.

The man is described as black, 20's, 5'7", thin build, possibly named Dave, wearing white t-shirt, black jeans and tennis shoes.

Responding officers learned there was a similarly described man trying to get into a nearby residence around 4:30 a.m. A 31-year old woman, who lives in the 1800 block of Fordem Dr., said he tried several times to open her sliding door, but it was locked.

As officers were investigating the first two calls, a burglary was reported. It also took place in the 1800 block, and likely occurred in the early morning hours. A 45-year old man awoke to find three rifles and a laptop computer missing from his apartment. The guns were found a short distance away, in a courtyard, but the computer was not. The victim had left his doors unlocked.

Police say due to the timing and proximity of the incidents they could be related
