Break-and-Enter on Prince George Dr.

Everyone, please be on the lookout for this criminal the Police have been hunting for 2 years. He started in Mimico a couple of years ago. We are told he recently sexually assaulted a woman in her home in the Islington Avenue and Dixon Road area and now he is in our neighbourhood.

Please read the following submitted to our Neighbourhood Watch website. It occurred on Prince George Drive:
“Just a quick note to let you know of a break-in that occurred at 3:00 am on Sunday at my neighbours’ across the street. She woke up at 3:00 am to a man kneeling by her bed staring at her — he had nudged her to wake her up. Startled she asked him what he was doing there and when she realized that her husband was on the other side of her she asked him who he was (she was still half asleep of course). At this point her husband woke up and bolted from the bed screaming at the man who whipped out of their bedroom. He then escaped through the same laundry room window he had gotten in by. He jumped her fence and ran into my next door neighbours yard. Their dog went crazy and they got up and saw the man jump into my yard. The police have told my neighbours that it is the same man wanted in a collection of robberies dating back two years. He apparently started working in Mimico and has more recently worked his way up to our area. Last week he sexually assaulted a woman during a break in. Their alarm system was not on at the time and oddly their young dog who is a real barker was in his crate — in their bedroom — and he didn't wake up. Since it was dark she doesn’t have a good description of the man other than he was about 6 feet tall, very muscular, was wearing gloves, a cap and a bandana over his face. He had gone through most of the house including their sons room. The only room he hadn’t made it to was their daughter’s — that would have been next. He made off with cash and their cell phones. In the kitchen he had lined up their laptop computers and the cables for them but he never made his way back there to take them since he was being chased. The police have said he cases out the houses before hand. Across the street he had unscrewed the bulbs to their motion sensor light. 
I know many people don’t bother putting their alarms on through the night. Might be time to rethink that.”
 Regarding the same incident, another neighbour writes:
“Our son, was downtown that night at a meet and greet function for University. He took the bus home very late and when he got off at Ridgevalley Crescent and the police would not let him down Prince George Drive. They said that they had police dogs out looking for this fellow and he would have to wait until they had finished their search to go home. He made it in just after 4:00 am. He knew which house it was and the fact that the alarm was not on (he thought that the back door had also been unlocked) but didn’t know any other details. Given that this is so close to home it would be nice if the police sent out some kind of bulletin to keep us informed and on our toes regarding locks and alarms.”
Please be vigilant with your locks and alarms.
