Geneseo Police released a composite sketch of a man they say broke into a home there in early September 2013.

Police said they were called to a home in the 900 block of South State Street just before 5 a.m. Monday, September 9.  The caller reported waking up to hearing strange sounds inside the house, and then discovering a man taking items out of the house and putting them in the yard.

The victim told police the intruder said he had permission to be in the house.  The victim called 911 and the alleged intruder was gone when police arrived.

Police said the alleged intruder may have used an open window to get inside the house.

The victim told police the alleged intruder is 5-feet 10-inches to 6-feet tall with a medium build.  He reportedly wore a blue and yellow striped shirt and khaki shorts.

A police crime scene artist created a sketch of the alleged intruder based on information the victim provided.  The sketch was distributed to media by police October 6.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Henry County Crime Stoppers at 800-227-2324.  Tips are anonymous and could lead to a cash reward.

    It would be nice if they gave an age range

    Thinking this should have been told to the neighbors in this neighborhood as I’m one of them and it would have been nice to know about this so I could step up security in my own home.

    I agree! This person could have changed his entire appearance in a month’s time. Makes no sense it took so long to release a description.

    This picture is not anatomically correct in the eyes or the mouth. Humans can’t have eyes that big. And it would have been good to know right after it happened. I hope the GPD doesn’t make the same mistake again of withholding this sort of info for a month. We need to know when to be on the lookout.
