According to Jeff Richerson, a detective with the Rome Police Department:
The resident heard a noise and saw a man in her home around 6:13 a.m. Sunday. He told her he was a police officer and asked if her husband was home.
She went into her bedroom and called police. The resident was not hurt.
The suspect is described as a clean cut white male about six feet tall with average build. He possibly has a sunken face or prominent jaw line.
He was wearing a dark ball cap without a logo and a dark fitted jacket. When he fled the scene he would have been in the area of South Hughes or South Hanks Street.
If anyone noticed a person like this in the area at that time or knows anything about this crime, please contact Richerson at 706-238-5123.
