MAINE TOWNSHIP, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man in a white cowboy hat broke into a woman's northwest suburban bedroom early Sunday, but fled when she began screaming and her roommate called 911.

A man wearing a white cowboy hat entered the bedroom of an apartment in the 9000 block of Kennedy Drive in unincorporated Maine Township about 4:45 a.m. Sunday, according to the Cook County Sheriff's office.

A woman sleeping in the bedroom woke up when she heard a noise and began to scream when she saw the stranger, according to a release from the sheriff's office.

A roommate sleeping in another room woke up to the screams and called 911, the sheriff's office said. No one was injured.

Investigators believe the man entered through an apartment window and fled through the front door when the woman began screaming.

Responding officers searched the area, but were unable to locate the man.

He is described as a 5-foot-10 to 6-foot white man between 30 and 40 years old, according to the sheriff's office. He was clean-shaven and wearing a white cowboy hat, white jacket and white shoes.
