Reporter Courtney Fischer has the details on a possible home intruder's arrest

SPRING, Texas -- Police arrested a man in Spring this morning while he allegedly peeked into a woman's home this morning, investigators tell Eyewitness News.

The woman called 911 when she saw him looking in, and then watched him go into his house, according to police. Officers arrested the man at a home in Spring. Police have not released his name.

Police said he's the intruder who broke into a home nearby and entered a couple's bedroom while they were sleeping in it. Police said he was wearing the same clothes seen in a neighbor's surveillance video.

Jarred Morris said his girlfriend felt someone in bed next to her early Sunday morning at their home in Legends Creek Drive.

She thought at first it was Morris's son or maybe the cat, but when she saw the intruder slumped down in the corner, Morris chased him away.

"Made his way through the hallway and bolted to the front door," Morris said, adding, "which is kinda odd to me, like he knew the layout of the house already."

Harris County Precinct 3 continues to investigate after surveillance images surfaced from Morris's neighbor's house.

Morris told Eyewitness News the same suspect tried getting into two other homes before he successfully broke into his place.
