BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Police in Boulder have issued a warning about a burglary spree. One of the suspects actually spooked people living in the homes in the middle of the night.

Police released a sketch from one case on Tuesday. The concern about the suspect is that police say he touched a woman who was sleeping after getting into her house.

Police say a burglar broke into a home in the neighborhood of 9th Street though a window. Once inside, a college age woman says she woke up to the suspect touching her leg.

“I’ve been leaving the windows open at night, letting the breeze in,” area resident Mara Holloway said. “So definitely no more of that and locking the doors.”

“As a girl, it just isn’t comforting, and you’re in college, a college girl, you definitely want to feel safe in your neighborhood,” Nicole Valaiga said.

Boulder police have increased patrols near the burglaries. An officer allegedly witnessed a suspect enter a house on Grandview Avenue in the early morning. Anthony Montano was arrested in that case. Detectives are working to figure out if Montano is involved with other burglaries.

Police are urging people to lock your doors and windows.
