What happened? According to Denver Metro Crime Stoppers, a man entered the residence by what's described as "unknown means" -- that could include breaking in or gaining access through an unlocked door or window -- and proceeded to the spot where the woman was sleeping. She awoke to him touching her.

When the shocked victim confronted the man, he fled. But before he split, she appears to have gotten a decent look at him.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male of medium height and build, dark hair, a goatee and bushy eyebrows. He wore a white T-shirt with some kind of logo on it, plus cargo shorts, off-white running shoes and tube socks folded down to his ankles.

Here's a larger version of the suspect sketch provided by the Denver Police Department:

If you recognize this guy, you're encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867). A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered in the case.
