It was a very frightening morning for a Mississauga woman who woke up to an intrudor in her home.

Around 6:30 a.m. this morning (Oct. 2), Peel police were called to a home in the Credit Woodlands and McBride Avenue area to investigate reports of a break in and attempted assault. 

“At about 6:35 this morning, a female occupant reported a male being in her bedroom,” said Const. Mark Fischer. “He didn’t assault her in any way and she was able to make him leave.”

Const. Fischer said that police went to the home with a canine unit but have so far been unable to find a track. The Criminal Investigation Bureau is currently investigating the incident. 

The suspect is still at large and is being described as a white male who is about 6 feet tall and 210 lbs. He was last seen wearing black sweatpants
