Authorities are seeking a man who they believe has broken into at least five Maywood residences and tried to assault women.
The latest incident occurred Saturday about 4 a.m. in the 3500 block of East 58th Street. The intruder forced his way into a home, entered the victim’s bedroom and covered her mouth. The victim’s mother heard a noise and went into the room to see if something was wrong, which prompted the attacker to flee.
Saturday’s incident was similar to the others, which also occurred early in the morning. So far, the intruder has been chased away each time.
Based on witness accounts, detectives describe the assailant as a man in his 20s, between 5 foot 2 inches and 5 foot 5 inches tall with a thin build.
