A STRANGER STRIKES AGAIN (Prowler targets 3rd Oakland girl within a week)

A stranger crawled through an open window early Tuesday while an 8-year-old girl, her family and their bulldog slept soundly.  The girl was threatened into silence and stillness for 45 minutes while enduring the stranger's touches.  When a resident of the house awoke and walked down the hall of the Brandon Township mobile home, it finally ended when the person found a man escaping through the girl's bedroom window.  This is the third incident in less than a week, it appears the girl is the victim of a serial child predator targeting western Oakland County mobile home parks.  On Saturday the victim was a 5-year-old girl at the Stratford Villa park in Commerce Township and on Thursday an 8-year-old girl at the Highland Greens park in Highland Township.  The Sheriff's Department is asking anyone with information to call 888-887-6146.
