Torrington police are trying to locate a burglary suspect who entered into a home on Eno Avenue while a girl was sleeping inside.
According to police, the suspect rang the doorbell of the home around 8 a.m. When no one answered the door, the suspect allegedly went around back and entered through an open kitchen window.
A girl who was sleeping in a bedroom at the time heard the noise from the suspect entering the home. She encountered the suspect, who left after trying to make an excuse for being inside, according to police.
Police said the suspect did not harm the girl and he did not take anything from the house.
The suspect is described as being in his early 20s, approximately 5-foot-3, with a skinny build, spiky brown hair, brown eyes, and a small patch of facial hair on his lower lip. He had tattoos on his arms and had “missing/decaying teeth.”
Investigators believe the suspect may have been in the area in the days leading up to the incident. Anyone with information or who saw anything suspicious in the area should contact Torrington Police Detective Keith Dablain at 860-489-2040.
