YEPPOON police are asking the community to be their eyes this week, as they try to track down a home intruder.

The intruder made headlines in The Morning Bulletin last week after a woman was left distraught following a break-in.

The woman was asleep in bed and her husband was in the bathroom when the intruder came into the bedroom. She said she felt him touch her leg.

He stole her handbag and its contents and her husband's wallet.

Since then, several Yeppoon residents have reported a man breaking into their properties while they were at home.

Police agreed there had been a spike in break-and-enters in Yeppoon in recent weeks, but said break-ins while people were home were highly unusual.

Detective Senior Constable Alex Nezric said police needed a clear description of the man.

"It appears to be someone who knows the area well, and someone who is pretty brazen," Det Sen Const Nezric said.

Detective Sen Const Nezric said he didn't think the man would hurt anyone but urged people to lock their homes.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333000 or Yeppoon Police on 49390000
