On October 25, 2017, at approximately 3:50 A.M., the Thousand Oaks Police Department responded to a prowler call in the 800 block Saint Charles Drive.  This is the second call for service regarding a prowler in the apartment complexes on Saint Charles Drive near McCloud Drive in the past 4 months.  During both incidents, the residents had left their sliding glass patio doors open.  


At approximately 3:00 A.M. the residents awoke to a prowler inside their residence. The male resident confronted the prowler who was attempting to flee.  A struggle ensued and the prowler was able to escape via the back patio.

The Thousand Oaks Police Department is seeking the public's assistance in identifying the prowler depicted in the composite sketch.  If anyone has additional information about the sketch or possible suspect please contact Detective Meagan Yates @ (805) 371-8397.
