A man was charged with attempted criminal trespass after a woman confronted him as he tried to enter her home Monday morning, police said.
Steven D. Manning, 32, was charged with one misdemeanor count of attempted criminal trespass to real property, according to a statement from Evanston police.
About 5:36 a.m. Monday, Evanston police responded to the 2000 block of Sherman Avenue after a 21-year-old woman living heard someone open her first-floor bedroom window, police said.
Officers stopped a man riding a bicycle in the area and an evidence technician matched fingerprints found at the scene to the man stopped by officers, police said.
Manning’s court information was not immediately available.
Police said several similar incidents involving unlocked doors and windows have been reported in the area in recent weeks.
