About 50 people attended the Thursday night meeting at the Carlsbad Senior Center.

Police passed out the sketch of the man they say has been looking through people’s windows and then climbing through the glass.

In one case, the prowler climbed into a teenager’s window but ran off when the girl woke up and started screaming.

Police say the incidents happened between Sept. 11 and Sept. 16.  In all cases, police say the man went in through an unlocked window on the ground floor.
