    Police are urging Norman residents and Oklahoma University students to remain vigilant as they continue to search for a man allegedly stalking women and breaking into their homes.

    The incidents happened on Feb. 2 and Feb 3. in the middle of the night.

    “Initially, it freaked me out. My bed is next to the window. Thinking about the cracks in the window and having someone look through it, made me a little uneasy,” said a victim.

    Surveillance video shows a man on Feb. 2 attempting to look into the victims bedroom window.

    “It shows him come up to the door a minute or two later (after the victim got home) and crouching down on all fours and looking into the window,” said the victim.

    The victim tells FOX 25 she had just walked home from a local bar with a friend before they split ways. She said she had no idea she was being followed.

    “A couple of days later, on Monday, my friend showed me the video showing someone had followed me home and proceeded to look into my window,” said the victim.

    On Feb. 3 around 2:30 am police responded to a home on the 200 block of Eddington St. for a burglary.

    The victim told police she and her four friends arrived at the home and she entered the home while the friends went to a nearby house.

    She then said an unknown Hispanic man entered the house wearing a bright orange beanie, black hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and blue latex gloves, carrying a tan rope

    “That victim immediately confronted that individual. He didn’t take anything. He just left the scene and left in a 2000-2005 marron Ford SUV,” said Sarah Jenson, Norman Police Public Safety Officer.

    Police are urging residents to stay vigilant and never walk home alone.

    “It’s really important that people make sure they are securing their vehicles and residences as well,” said Jenson. “There are individuals who walk these streets daily so they know when there’s something out of place or doesn’t feel right and we want them to know they can always contact us in those instances.”

    “We got a security system installed. We lock our doors all the time,” said the victim. “You can never be too careful.”

    Anyone with information regarding the identity of the male suspect in the sketch or videos included is asked to contact the NPD Criminal Investigations Division at 405-366-5440 or Norman Crime Stoppers at 405-366-STOP (7867). Information that leads to an arrest could result in a cash reward.
