This creepy headline comes courtesy of the LA Times. At about 2 a.m. on Wednesday, sheriff's deputies say a man broke into a Rancho Palos Verdes home and began stroking the teenage daughter's hair and whispered something into her ear. She was never hurt during the incident, but when she awoke and screamed, her parents chased him out. The suspect is described as a 20 to 25-year-old Latino, 5-foot-10 and arond 160 pounds. He was wearing jeans and a hooded sweatshirt with the word "Hollywood" on it. Anyone with information is urged to call Det. Chuck Braden at (310) 891-3234.
