COLUMBUS, Ohio - Police in central Ohio are continuing to search for a man they say breaks into homes to sometimes watch women as they sleep.
Columbus police released a map Friday they say shows the latest whereabouts of the "Hilltop Creeper" -- a nickname given by officials to highlight the Hilltop neighborhood in the city's west side where several incidents have been reported.
Police say the man is suspected of sneaking into homes through a window, lurking over someone as they sleep and often touching them. Most victims appear to be women who say the suspect leaves once police are called.
Police say more than a dozen incidents have been reported since December, including a surge over the summer months.
