Two young women were sexually assaulted in their sleep by a serial predator who snuck into their house.
The man snuck into a house in Pacific Paradise on the Sunshine Coast on February 17.
A woman, in her early 20s, awoke to a ‘crawling sensation’ down her neck, before finding the man kneeling next to her while indecently assaulting her.
‘I thought it was a spider or might’ve been in my dreams, I flicked the light switch on and he was kneeling beside my bed with his pants half down, and he quoted “I f***** up”,’ the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, told 7News.

The terrified woman changed her locks, but two weeks later the man snuck in again through a fly screen.
Her housemate, also in her 20s, woke up in the middle of the night to find the same man standing over her bed.
‘I was laying on my back and I’ve woken up to him touching me very inappropriately,’ she said.
The woman pretended to still be asleep, and didn’t make any sudden movements while she deliberated what to do.
‘I didn’t know if I could reach and hit him with something,’ she said.
But out of fear the woman then screamed.
‘He didn’t look shocked at all, he didn’t (gasp) and then run out, he just stared at me, then turned and sprinted,’ she said.

The predator fled on foot out the front door and into the night.
Detective Senior Sergeant Daren Edwards on Tuesday said the second incident on Sunday ‘was an indication of some escalating behaviour’.
Det Edwards said police were trying to identify the man as soon as possible.
He is described as white, about 183cm tall, aged in his 20s with shoulder-length brown hair.
