COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - College Station police believe they have a serial trespasser in the city.
Over the last year, they have five reports of the same man entering unlocked homes in the area near Holleman Drive and Harvey Mitchell Parkway. No one has been injured and nothing has been taken from the homes.
College Station police wouldn't release the locations of where the man has been, but did release a vague description. Officers said the suspect is a black male in his 20s, between 5'6" and 5'10" tall, with a medium build and muscular frame.
"I mean, as a resident, that's terrifying," said Brandi Bryant. She lives in the area and attends Texas A&M University.
"I don't want to walk into my house or come downstairs and somebody's just sitting there. I think that's kind of violating," continued Bryant. She first learned about the serial trespasser Thursday.
"We have not seen any obvious patterns. We're still investigating. We haven't seen anything that really just jumps out. That's why we're asking for the public's help," explained College Station Lt. Craig Anderson. He's encouraging residents to stay vigilant.
People who live in the area are making sure they don't become the next victim.
"We lock our doors, car doors, house doors. We do take some certain safety precautions inside our house to make sure that in case there ever was somebody we would be able to protect ourselves," said Bryant.
College Station police said the man could face criminal trespassing charges if caught. If any items are taken from a home, those charges could be upgraded from trespassing to burglary.
