Cook County police are searching for a man who broke into a South West suburban couple's home Wednesday and stood over them while they slept.

The man broke into the home at 16400 block of Lee Avenue and didn't steal anything but behaved erratically, the Cook County Sheriff's office said. 

The female resident woke to the man standing above her wearing only a black hooded sweatshirt and women's underwear, police said. He moved to the foot of the bed, apparently to hide himself from the couple. When the male resident in the room yelled, the man replied with in a deep voice and then calmly walked out of the room.

There were children living in the home, but none were harmed. 

The invader was described as a white male between 20 and 30 years old.  He stood about 6 feet tall and had a thin build and light colored, long hair in a pony tail or bun hairstyle.

The Cook County Sheriff's Police are asking anyone with information to call the investigation's unit at 708-865-4896 or the radio communications center at 847-635-1188.
