Police are looking for a man accused of burglarizing and sexually assaulting single women in Los Feliz.

The LAPD put out a community alert yesterday after linking the man to a total of 13 crimes dating all the way back to March, according to CBS Los Angeles. The crimes took place along Los Feliz Boulevard in Los Feliz and Atwater Village.

The suspect targets single women who live alone, and he enters through unlocked doors and windows, police told CBS. He steals their jewelry, cash, laptops and sometimes even their lingerie. At least three victims were sexually assaulted in their sleep.

LAPD says that they're only putting out an alert about it now, because they've only recently connected all these incidents and attributed it to the same man. Police are working on a composite image of the man.

The suspect is described as a Latino in his late 20's, 5 feet 7 inches to 10 inches, and 150-160 pounds. He has a mustache, dark complexion and slim build.
