"It had been secured but he managed to get it open," Haltom City police Cpl. Cody Phillips said Thursday.
Once inside, the man entered the woman's bedroom, police said.
The victim chased the man out of her home after waking up, police said. Other residents were sleeping in the house at the time of the attack, police said.
Just hours before that incident, a man fitting the same description was seen looking through a window at another home late Sunday night in the 5800 block of Bonanza Drive, police said. Residents there also ran him off, police said.
The victim described the intruder as a Hispanic man, about 30 to 45 years old, about 5-foot-10 to 6-foot-1 and a thin build. He has medium-length black hair with some gray or highlights. The man was wearing a red shirt, dark pants and a dark colored ball cap.
