Police investigate home invasions in Etobicoke

A woman awoke to a man standing in her bedroom. There were two reported break-ins in the Royal York Rd and Bloor area

Toronto police are investigating a pair of home invasions that happened overnight in Etobicoke.

Police say they occurred in the Royal York Road and Bloor area on Friday morning.

In the one incident, a woman woke up to a man standing in her bedroom just before 5 a.m. He was described as being a black man who was wearing dark clothes and white gloves.

The suspect took off on a bike and was last seen near Islington and Dundas. Police dogs are scouring the area for any sign of the suspect.

Police are also trying to determine if that break-in is connected to another that happened the same morning in that area.

For the past two summers, there have been similar break-and-enters in this neighbourhood with a suspect outstanding. Police are looking into whether they may be a connection.

In both incidents on Friday morning, no one was injured.
