Blotter: 'Strange male' stalks woman in shower, report says

A 21-year-old woman told police a "strange male" watched her in the shower early Wednesday morning and pulled a towel away when she tried to cover herself. 

No arrests were made after police responded to the woman's call about 6:50 a.m. at the Ridge at North Texas apartments in the 2700 block of Colorado Boulevard. The woman said she left her apartment unlocked and yelled for him to leave when he entered. 

She told police the man refused to leave. She covered herself with a bath towel while yelling to him. At one point, the man pulled the towel away, leaving her fully exposed, the police report said. 

The suspect "stood there looking at her" before running away, she said in the police report. Police weren't able to find the man when they arrived on the scene, and the investigation is ongoing.
