I got back from the bay area last week and my sister who lives in Moreno Valley called to let me know about this suspect in my area of Los Feliz. Since last week I have been closing all my windows and I am worried about my personal safety. I live alone and until this man is caught it has shaken my peace of mind

@Leonor-I am sorry to hear this. I am sure there are others who feel like you, especially in this hot weather that encourages open doors and windows. AR
