Ansonia police are urging residents of the BeaverBrook Apartment Complex to lock their doors after one or more men have entered apartments while the female residents were sleeping.
The latest incident was reported at 3:17 a.m. on Saturday.
A female resident woke up to find a male standing inside her apartment, police said. He grabbed her arm and ran off. The woman was not hurt, police said.
The woman described the man who broke in as thin, 5-feet-7 with wavy brown hair. He was wearing blue jeans and a dark T-shirt. Police were not able to find the man.
On June 30, a female resident of the complex woke around 4 a.m. and found a male standing inside of her apartment, touching her on the thigh, police said.
The man left the apartment and the female was not injured, police said.
While police were investigating, they learned that there had been a similar incident three weeks earlier.
A female woke to her dog barking, went to see what was wrong and saw a thin male, about 5-feet-10, standing in her apartment, police said.
The dog chased the man off.
Police said they do not know if the incidents are related, but noted that there are definite similarities.
Police said the apartment complex management and residents were notified of the incidents in June.
Because of the third incident, police are advising BeaverBrook residents to lock their doors and windows at night, especially their sliding doors and report anything out of the ordinary.
If anyone sees anything suspicious in the area they are advised to call police immediately at 203-735-1885 or 911.
