Prowler Howler

Bakersfield has its very own mystery man. Starting last March, the “Southwest Prowler” has been sneaking into homes and… well…not doing much. Yesterday he was spotted hanging out shirtless in a woman’s kitchen. In the past he has awakened sleeping women then split when they start yelling (one woman claimed he fondled her). The Prowler has been spotted in nine different locations, all of them south of Hwy 58 and west of Union. (Not exactly the area I think of when you say southwest, but okay.)

The man has been described as a light skinned black or Hispanic male in his late teens or early twenties, which narrows it down to about half the city.
