Cary police: Woman reports man put hand over her mouth, said 'go to sleep'

CARY – Police are investigating a battery complaint after a woman reported that a man covered her mouth with his hand and told her to “go to sleep.”

About 12:45 p.m. Thursday, the Cary Police Department responded to Glazy Daze Pottery Studio, 121 W. Main St., after a woman called in the report. The woman was in the business when the suspect came in and started asking about nearby vacancies, police said.

As they talked, the suspect said he was a chiropractor and offered the woman an evaluation. She agreed, but during the evaluation, the man covered her mouth and asked her to “go to sleep,” police said.  

The woman freed herself and told the man to leave, which he did. He is described as an older white man wearing jeans, a dark jacket and dark shoes. He was last seen walking across the street to Harris Bank, where he got in his car and drove away, police said.

The suspect’s vehicle was described as a gold Buick Century or LeSabre with an Illinois license plate beginning with Y or A7, police said.

Anyone with information about the identification of the suspect is encouraged to call the Cary Police Department at 847-639-2341 or McHenry County Crime Stoppers at 800-762-7867. Individuals who call Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward.
