Man suspected of crawling through window, assaulting sleeping woman

SAN DIEGO — Police are searching for a man they suspect of breaking into a Pacific Beach home and sexually assaulting a woman while she slept.

It happened after midnight on Oct. 1, when investigators say the man crawled through an open window at the home on Chalcedony Street. He attacked the sleeping woman and then ran away when she woke up.

Police believe the man was 55-year-old Jeffrey Hanze. Officials say Hanze, who sometimes uses the last name “Hanre,” is a balding, white man with blue eyes. Hanze is about 6 feet tall and weighs around 200 pounds.
