Woman finds intruders playing dress-up

WINONA, Minn. (AP) — Police say a Winona woman came home to find two teens playing dress-up in her bedroom.

The woman told investigators she came home Saturday evening and noticed that a window leading from the porch to the living room had been opened. She says she went into her bedroom and found a male and female who appeared to be in their teens.

Police Sgt. Chris Nelson says the girl was trying on the woman's clothes and jewelry, while the boy "just stood there."

Nelson says when they saw the woman, the girl took off the clothes and jewelry and the pair fled out a side door. The woman followed them briefly but lost them.

A Winona Daily News report ( ) says the woman wasn't immediately sure whether anything was missing.
