Intruder reportedly breaks into Bloomington woman’s home, punches her, leaves

A 19-year-old Bloomington woman told police a man broke into her home Saturday morning, punched her face, hammered holes in her drywall and left.

The woman called 911 after a man she didn’t know broke into her home on South Winslow Court, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. David Alley said.

She told police she came home around 11 p.m. Friday and might have left her door unlocked.

Police said the woman reported hearing a noise in her apartment and then seeing the man.

She told officers she ran into her bathroom where the man followed her and punched the left side of her face. Alley said she had some bruises.

The woman stayed in the bathroom until she heard the noises stop and then called the police.

The man made holes in the drywall with a hammer and then left. The woman told police he didn’t steal anything.

There are no suspects right now but police are investigating the incident, Alley said.
