Philadelphia Police say two women were groped during recent break-ins in the Northeast.

The first incident happened on April 3rd at 3:40 a.m. in the 10000 block of Jeanes Street. Police say a 27-year-old woman woke up to find a man caressing her leg.

Not recognizing the man she screamed and he fled through the front door. It's believed he got into the home through an unlocked first-floor window.

That man was described as a white male, 25 to 35 years old standing about 5'10" tall. He had a shaved head and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a raised hood, black pants and sneakers.

The next incident happened on Wednesday, April 10th at 1:00 a.m. in the 10000 block of Ferndale Street. Police say a 25-year-old woman woke up to find an unknown man kneeling next to the bed making "indecent contact" with her.

She screamed and the man fled through a first-floor window in the next bedroom. The woman told police that window may have been unlocked.

The man was described as a white male in his late 20s standing 5'10" to 6' tall. He had a buzz cut, a light brown beard and mustache and was wearing a black zip-up hooded sweatshirt, light blue t-shirt and blue plaid shorts.

In the first case, the 25-year-old woman had her child in bed with her.

In the second case, the 27-year-old woman's toddler and husband were in the bed.
