Savage police on Tuesday took the unusual step of advising parents to secure their homes and supervise their children closely after a child awoke and saw an unknown person in their bedroom. The screen window of the children’s bedroom had been removed, police said.

The incident occurred Monday night in the 4400 block of W. 137th Street. The child’s parents contacted police at noon Tuesday. Police did not say how the person got out of the child’s room and a description of the suspect was not available.

A week earlier, another resident in the area told police that a chair had been found under the window of their child’s bedroom and that the window screen had been removed. There was no evidence that anyone entered the home in that case, police said.

“We are aggressively investigating these incidents and have increased patrol of the affected area,” said Capt. Dave Muelken. He stressed that parents should lock their home’s windows and doors at all times, walk their children to and from school and not leave their children unsupervised.
