Police seek clues to Sebastopol intruder

Sebastopol police are seeking information about a man who startled a sleeping couple in their Sebastopol bedroom early Friday when they awoke to find the man standing over them.

The woman awoke at about 3:30 a.m. and saw a man standing at the foot of the bed wearing jeans and a blue hooded sweatshirt pulled over his head, Lt. James Conner said.

“She screamed which woke her husband and scared the intruder out of the room,” Connor said.

The man ran out of the home through a kitchen door, in stocking feet, carrying his shoes, Connor said. The husband chased him down the block and onto Calder Avenue before losing sight of him in a block without streetlights.

Neither of the victims got a good look at the man, however from behind the husband thought he looked like a male in his mid-20s, Connor said.

Officers searched the neighborhood for two hours, but found no evidence of the intruder.

The suspect’s motive was still unclear, as nothing was taken from the home and detectives didn’t find evidence that he’d broken into the home, Connor said.

“We’re still looking, but we have very few leads on it,” Connor said.

Anyone with information about the case can contact Officer Nick Belliveau at 829-4400.
