Mandan police officers were dispatched to the 1000 block of 24th Avenue Northwest at midnight on Sunday and at 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Sgt. Jay Gruebele said in the first report, the woman saw a stranger in dark clothing and a dark mask when she went outside her home to get something out of her vehicle. In the second report, she saw a dark figure outside the window of her basement apartment.

“It startled her to where she screamed or yelled, and she said at that point it looked like the figure ran away,” Gruebele said.
