Women say Lake Tahoe intruder slipped into hotel, fondled their feet

Police in Lake Tahoe are on the lookout for a prowler who they say has been breaking into hotel rooms and fondling women's feet.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said detectives investigating two separate reports on Sunday and Monday from a resort in the 180 block of Elks Point Road in Stateline, Nevada, on the southeastern shore of Lake Tahoe. 

Two different women reported waking up about 4:30 a.m. to an intruder "fondling their feet." 

When they woke up, the intruder left the room, the sheriff wrote on Facebook.
