    A woman was sexually assaulted Wednesday morning after waking up to a stranger in her bedroom, police said.

    The victim told police she was sleeping in her home in the 1700 block of River Bend Way when she woke up around 10 a.m. to an unknown man in her bedroom.

    "I saw a guy in front of my door, my bedroom door, trying to peak at me just a little bit," the victim told News4. "He opened the door a little bit. He touched me, removed my little shirt that I had on that night."

    Investigators say the man exposed himself to the woman before sexually assaulting her. Authorities believe the woman's assailant entered through a window in the home before fleeing on foot.

    According to police, the man's face was partially covered during the assault, but the victim was able to provide enough of a description to develop a composite sketch.

    "I'm coming home at night, late at 10, 10:30, sometimes 11," the victim said. "And I'm scared to see somebody waiting for me in the parking lot."

    After hearing about the crime, neighbors in the area are also concerned.

    "I'm actually kind of terrified. I come home at night, so it's like... that does not make me feel any better," one neighbor said.

     

    The suspect is described as a black man who is between 25 and 30 years old. He is 6' to 6'5" tall, has a thin build and short hair.

    Anyone with information is asked to call police at 703-670-3700.
