Suspect at-large after brazen home invasion caught on surveillance video

(ABC News) -- After a young woman in Fort Worth, Texas, fell asleep alone in her home, she was allegedly attacked by a man in a brazen home invasion caught on surveillance camera.
 
The woman, who was not identified by ABC affiliate WFAA in Dallas, told WFAA that she happened to fall asleep while watching the show "A Stranger in My Home" on the Investigation Discovery channel.
 
Surveillance video shows a man lurking outside the woman's home early Saturday as he searches for a way to get in. He then broke in through a window, according to WFAA.
 
The terrifying video shows him walking through her home and in front of her TV.
 
"I woke up to him putting his hand over my mouth and nose and strangling me with the other hand," she told WFAA. "At first I was immobile because I thought I was in a dream."
 
The woman told WFAA that the man told her to take her pants off, and that's when she saw an open window and thought that was her only opportunity to get out alive -- but she said the man dragged her back in. She said she screamed for help and he fled, according to WFAA.
 
The woman was not injured, WFAA said.
 


Sgt. Marc Povero of the Fort Worth Police Department told ABC News that police are investigating leads but have made no arrests. Povero could not immediately confirm the woman's account as police have not yet released details from the case to the media.
