WOOD RIVER — Police are looking for a man who jumped out of a house’s window Thursday morning after the homeowner confronted him.
In a press release, Wood River Deputy Chief Dan Bunt said at 11:59 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, police received a 911 call from a resident in the 1100 block of Cedar Drive. The complainant advised she entered her bedroom and discovered a white man, short, medium built, with a short beard and mustache and wearing a dark-hooded sweatshirt and jeans. The man, after being confronted by the homeowner, jumped out the window he apparently had entered earlier.
An additional residence in the 100 block of Red Bud Drive was found to have an attempted entry in the same manner as the Cedar address. Both residences have privacy fences and the windows where entry was gained or attempted are inside the fences.
With the assistance of Illinois State Police Crime Scene and the victim, police completed a composite sketch. If anyone recognizes the sketch or if someone matching the description was seen in the area, call the Wood River Police Department at (618) 251-3114.
