WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Winston-Salem police need help to identify a man accused of reaching through an open bedroom window and grabbing a girl’s arm.

Police said the girl was sleeping when she was startled by the man in her window. Investigators said the incident occurred on October 28 just before 2:30 a.m. at the home on Rosemary Dr. in Winston-Salem.

The girl told police the man left after grabbing her arm. Police do not know the man’s intentions at this time.

However, detectives discovered video surveillance from a neighboring residence. They said it revealed the man of interest walking through the neighborhood about an hour and a half prior to a burglary that occurred. The man was wearing a light-colored zip-up hoodie, light-colored pants, a flat-billed baseball hat and dark-colored mask.

Police said a car break-in occurred the same night at a neighboring house. They also said patio furniture was moved from another home.

If you have any information call the Winston-Salem Police Department at (336) 773-7700 or CrimeStoppers at (336) 727-2800.
