Decatur Police Department continues to search for a young man who allegedly broke into an apartment and grabbed a young woman Monday morning. The suspect entered the apartment at approximately 8 a.m. through an unlocked door. According to investigators he snuck up behind a female in the residence and grabbed her in a “bear hug.” But the female fought back and proceeded to force the man out of the second floor apartment. No items were taken, and no injuries were reported. The home invasion occurred at Crestview Place Apartments located in the 900 block of W. Thompson Avenue. The identity of the suspect is not known at this time, but is described as a white male with a thin build that looks to be anywhere from 18 to his late 20s. He has pale skin, dark wavy hair ┬áthat cover his ears but doesn’t go down to his shoulders, dark eyes and is between 5’10” and 6′ tall. He was wearing a baseball hat with a flat brim, a long sleeve black shirt and dark pants. The victim worked with Ashleigh Portales with the Wise County Sheriff’s Office to produce a composite sketch of the suspect. After the home invasion occurred this morning, McCarroll Middle School, located across the street from the apartments, went into a “soft lockdown” mode for most of the morning as a precautionary measure. Anyone with information on the suspect is encouraged to contact the Decatur POlice Department at (940) 393-0310.
