LANDOVER, Md. (WJZ) — Detectives are working to identify and arrest the man who broke into a home in the Landover area.

Police said once the man was inside the home, he inappropriately touched a woman. The victim said she does not know the suspect.

The suspect reportedly broke into the home in the 3000 block of Meadow Trail lane on Sunday morning at around 6 a.m., entering through an unlocked window.

He then allegedly inappropriately touched the victim before fleeing.

The suspect is wearing dark clothing, a dark knit hat or hoodie, police said.

A similar incident occurred on January 7, at a nearby home in the 6000 block of Landing way.

In that case, a suspect also broke into the home through a window, sexually assaulted a woman and then fled.

Detectives are investigating whether or not these two incidents are connected.
