Nelson woman reports intruder

Monday, January 14, 2013

A Nelson woman reported a home invasion Friday morning, Jan. 11, according to a Saline County Sheriff's Department report.

The woman, who lives on Main Street, told deputies she had locked the front and back doors to her residence before putting on some music and taking a shower.

While in the shower, she noticed the volume on the stereo was reduced. When she opened the shower curtain, she saw an unknown white male standing in her bathroom, deputies said.

The man was described as 5 feet 9 inches tall, 180 pounds, in his late 30s with short black hair. He was wearing a maroon and black or dark blue plaid long-sleeved shirt and blue jeans.

Deputies noted pry marks on the front and back doors of the residence, according to the report.

The investigation continues.
