Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Rochester police are working to identify a man who entered a woman's apartment while dressed in dark clothing and wearing a black ski mask.

The woman called 911 just before 2 AM Saturday and reported that she woke up to find the intruder in her bedroom. A spokesman says she told the responding officers he was a slender Caucasian male in his 40s and appeared to have been trying to disguise his voice when he told the victim to "take it off" after she became aware of his presence.

She responded by screaming and the man fled from her apartment in the 1200 block of Fourth Avenue Southwest in the neighborhood just west of the Crossroads Shopping Center.  She also indicated that she might have left her front door unlocked.
