A man broke into a Mira Mesa apartment, hovered over a woman and her daughter as they slept, San Diego police said.
The man climbed to a second-story balcony and went inside through a sliding door around 1 a.m. at the West Star Apartments on Black Mountain Road near Carroll Canyon Road, officers said.
Resident Tyler Oharrow called police when he spotted a man in his 20s in the complex ducking behind cars, pacing and acting strangely.
“I noticed him on the top of one of the units walls looking inside one of the upper apartments,” Oharrow said.
Minutes later, another tenant called saying that a strange man was hovering over her when she woke up.
The woman, who was sleeping alongside her daughter, told police she screamed and the man ran away.
There was no physical contact between the woman and the suspect but police believe it’s possible it could have led to that if the woman didn't wake up when she did.
Officers collected evidence from the balcony.
They released a suspect description of a man in his early 20s with short, spiked hair and a thin moustache wearing a white or a grey T-shirt and jeans.
