PRAIRIE VILLAGE, KS (KCTV) -

Police are investigating an aggravated burglary in Prairie Village Sunday morning.

It happened in the 7400 block of Fontana Street about 4:45 a.m. Police say the victim woke to find a man standing in her home. She screamed and he ran off. 

Officers say the burglar spoke to the victim but didn’t threaten her. He took items from the home and left on foot.

It's left people in the neighborhood feeling on edge. Neighbors say this isn't the first crime that's occurred in recent weeks.

Investigators say the same family recently had their vehicle stolen and the criminal keyed about a dozen cars up and down the block.

Martha Halvordson showed KCTV5 the scratches on her car. She says she’s lived in the area for a long time, and the crime has never hit so close to home.

“I've started to make sure that my doors were always locked. I did have my front door open so a neighbor could come over, but I'm not going to do that anymore," she said.

Police say the burglar from Sunday morning was a man in this 30s with brown hair and short facial hair. He was wearing a gray K-State sweatshirt and white sweatpants.

If you know anything that might help in this investigation, call the Prairie Village Police Department at 913-642-5151 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
