Night terror: East Village woman wakes up with stranger in her bed

Cops are searching for a pervert after an East Village resident woke up during the early hours of the morning with a stranger in her bed, authorities said.

Cops are still searching for the pervert they say broke into a woman’s East Village apartment last week and crawled into bed with her.

According to police sources, the skin-crawling incident took place inside of an apartment near East 11th Street and Avenue A on Wednesday, Dec. 6. The creep apparently entered the residence at around 2:30 a.m., after the door was left unlocked.

Once inside, authorities say the unidentified man made his way to the bed where a 23-year-old woman was sleeping and got in, lying alongside her. Cops believe he intended to sexually assault the woman, but the movement awakened the occupant, which sent the sicko fleeing from the building.
