It's a fairly new crime in Springfield. Police say a man walked into an unlocked home in the 700 block of South Warren Avenue, around 6:25 a.m. Wednesday, and beat up the person inside. From the SPD news release:
The victim was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The motive for this assault is unclear at this time.

Officers are looking for a w/m, 6’0” with a slim build. He was described as having light brown hair and is approximately 20-30 years of age. He was last seen wearing a red/green/blue plaid jacket with hood, blue jeans and brown work boots. He did not have facial hair.

The suspect’s hair is described as very short on the sides with a strip down the middle that was combed forward. Perhaps not a full Mohawk, but maybe a "high and tight" style of haircut, or some other unusual style.

Officers would like to remind citizens to be aware of their surroundings, keep their doors locked, even if they are at home; and to have good lighting around their house.
Got info? Call the cops at (417) 864-1810.
