SAN DIEGO – A woman in the Little Italy neighborhood said she awoke to a strange man standing in her bedroom early Saturday morning.

“All of a sudden, I hear footsteps coming into the house and the sound of a man,” said Sarah Johnson.

Johnson said her roommates were gone for only 5 minutes, but they forgot to lock the front door.

“I look up and he’s standing at the edge of my bed and he looked at me,” said Johnson.

After a few seconds, Sarah said the man casually left out the front door.

“I was so startled I was in shock I’ve never dealt with this,” said Johnson.

She immediately called 9-11 and her roommates. San Diego Police are investigating the case.

“He matched the description of what’s been going on with the ladies in North Park,” said Johnson.

“We are a group of real life superheroes,” said Mr. Extreme.

Extreme is with the citizen’s patrol group Xtreme Justice League. Due to the recent rash of sex assaults around San Diego, the group said it’s going to step up its patrol.

“We’re going to be out there and we’re going to be looking for you,” said Extreme, directing his statement toward the suspect or suspects terrorizing women in North Park. Mr. Extreme said he and about 20 other members of the league are handing out fliers and increasing their patrols in the area. They are even offering escorts to women.

“It’s part of an effort to try and bring this evil doer to justice,” said Mr. Extreme.

“I know they’ve reported fights in the area around downtown bars,” said Lt. Kevin Mayer, San Diego Police Department. “Anybody that would like to go out and help be our eyes and ears we appreciate that.”

Mayer said the department welcomes the Justice League’s help.

“They like any other group, they’re just happen be dressed up in capes and wearing different costumes,” said Lt. Mayer.

Back in Little Italy, Sarah said capes or costumes, whatever it takes to bring this creep in.

“Where ever they can get more patrol around is going to be more than helpful and safe and kind of comforting,” said Johnson.

Investigators do not believe the intruder in Little Italy is related to the crimes in North Park.

There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the attacks in North Park.
