Has North Florence Bedroom Intruder Struck Again?

Are young college age women being targeted by a bedroom intruder in the North Florence area? It would seem so. Let's look at these four intrusions/attacks.

1. All victims were relatively young white females.

2. Intruder always described as young white male.

3. All attacks occurred on a week-day morning while UNA was in session.

Beyond that, details have varied. Here's a run down on each attack:

1. North Wood Avenue - February 24, 2012 - Victims were 20 and 21 year-old roommates and UNA students. One victim was held down and choked until she escaped. Attack occurred at 3:15 a.m. on a Friday morning.

2. Seymore Avenue - March 24, 2012 - Victims were 19 and 20 year-old roommates and UNA students. Both escaped. Attack occurred at 4:15 a.m. on a Wednesday morning.

3. Heathrow Drive - March 26, 2012 - 30 year old victim was held down on her bed until intruder was startled by child and fled. Attack occurred at 4:00 a.m. on a Monday morning.

4. Summit Ridge - 18 year-old victim was held down and sexually abused. Attack occurred at 5:30 a.m. on a Monday morning. Attacker described as 6 feet tall and wearing a red hooded sweatshirt.

Is it a coincidence that the attacks halted over the summer months and resumed shortly after the start of UNA's fall semester? We're sure Florence police are looking into every aspect of this case. In the mean time, stay safe. Be alert and invest in some extra protection.

  1. A shot to the balls should do the trick, maybe a .45.
