Etobicoke continues to be plagued by disturbing break-and-enters - home owners waking up in the middle of the night to see a man standing in their bedroom.

Police say there were three more similar incidents at about 2 a.m. Saturday on Enfield and Gort Aves, in the area of Brown's Line and Lake Shore Blvd.

At one point, officers chased the suspect in a foot pursuit, but he got away.

Neighbours in the area tell Newstalk 1010 that it's a quiet community.

"It's quite alarming to hear this... it's very unusual. You don't hear that sort of thing happening in this neck of the woods," said Marcel. He has lived in the area for seven years and said he moved there with his family because it was supposed to be safe. 

Police have not released a description of the suspect from this morning's incidents, but they are looking into whether today's break-ins are related to yesterday's, as well as a number of Etobicoke home invasions since the summer of 2012.

    I predict this creep is the neglected son of a cop or teacher. This would explain his lack of moral values. His desire is to be just like Daddy, a success at his trade at the extreme expense of others.
