Oxnard police are putting the community on alert, after an intruder entered the bedroom of an eight year old girl, and placed a rag over her mouth until she started screaming.
It happened just after 3 a.m. yesterday, on the 2400 block of East Pleasant Valley Road. Police say a man entered a mobile home through an open bedroom window, cutting through a screen to make entrance.
The girl woke up after the man put his hand, and the rag over her mouth, and her screams scared him away before other family members could reach her bedroom. The girl was unhurt.
Police say you should remember to lock all of your windows, and doors at night, and when you’re not at home.
