OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- Around 2:30 a.m. Saturday a woman woke up to a man laying on top of her, according to the Oshkosh Police Department.

The man tried to sexually assault her but, police say, the woman was able to defend herself.

The incident happened inside a home on the 600 block of Scott Avenue.

Authorities say the description of the man is similar to a trespassing incident from the same day. In the trespassing incident a woman woke up to a man standing next to her in her room.

In both cases there were no signs that the man forced his way into the home.
