West Chester Man Broke Into Home Through Bedroom Window: Police

EAST GOSHEN TOWNSHIP, PA — A West Chester man allegedly burglarized a West Goshen Township home, coming in through a woman’s bedroom window before fleeing as she called 911, according to police.

Early Sunday morning officers arrived at the home in the 1600 block of Paoli Pike, East Goshen Township, for the reported burglary in progress.

The woman who lived there told police a man came into her bedroom and then fled. She told police she then locked herself in the room and called 911, according to a report from Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department.

Police reported the officers at the home found signs of forced entry to the front door of the home. Officers searched the house and reported that the suspect had fled the scene.

As officers gathered a report from the woman, they remembered that they had seen a suspect fitting the description on Paoli Pike as they headed to the home earlier, police reported. Police then found a man who matched the description in the 1500 block of Paoli Pike, the report said.

Police reported they told the suspect he was being stopped because he matched the description of someone that broke into a nearby house. Evidence at the burglarized home positively identified the suspect as the person who had entered the victim’s home by force.

Kamrun Morrison, 26, of West Chester was charged with Criminal Trespass, breaking into a structure; and with Burglary, overnight accommodations with a person present, bodily injury crime, both felonies. He is also charged with Criminal Mischief, damage to property, a misdemeanor, according to court documents.

Morrison was arraigned in Chester County District Court and bail was set at $35,000.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 30.
