Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department says they are investigating several burglaries, some of which may also be sexual assault cases. 

Over the past year, CMPD Sexual Assault detectives have been investigating cases involving a suspect who has broken into residences across Charlotte. In some of the cases, the suspect has sexually assaulted women inside of the homes. 

The incidents being investigated have taken place at: 

  • 4400 block of Lothar Ridge Ln. 
  • 1900 block of Slater Ridge Dr.
  • 800 block of Swearngan Ridge Ct.
  • 1300 Peach Park Ln. 
  • Wynbrook Way 
  • 6000 Regal Estate Ln. 
  • Wynbrook Way 

Detectives say they do not have enough information to confirm that these cases are related to each other, but say the suspect description in each is similar. The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20’s with a thin build. 

These are active investigations. CMPD says they will release more information as it becomes available. 

As always, CMPD encourages you to lock your doors and windows every night, and leave a light on somewhere around your home.
