Independence police are warning residents of a man who is approaching women “inappropriately” and who may be the same person who invaded a woman’s home and “attacked” her in her sleep.
Police said all the known incidents have occurred near East 14th Street and South Cunningham Avenue.
The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man, 20-25 years old, between 5-feet-6-inches and 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighing 120-140 pounds. He has short hair and is clean-shaven.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Tips Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).
