Police: naked man coated victim with baby shampoo

January 18, 2019

BRIDGEPORT - A local woman woke up to find a strange naked man on top of her and her genital area coated in baby shampoo, police said.

Hiram Heredia, 35, a homeless man, was charged Friday with home invasion, fourth-degree sexual assault and attempted fourth-degree sexual assault.

He was being held in lieu of $300,000 bond.

Police said the woman woke up in the bedroom of her Vine Street home in the middle of the night to find a man sucking on her chest. When she realized it was not her husband who was asleep in the bed next to her, police said she screamed, and the naked man jumped off the bed.

The woman then realized her genital area was coated in baby shampoo, police said.

“I woke and there was baby soap all over me,” they said she complained.

Police said the woman shook her husband awake and yelled at him that a man had just tried to rape her. The husband got up and ended up chasing the naked Heredia out of the house and down the street before losing him, police said.

When officers arrived at the home they spotted a pile of clothing the assailant had left by the bed. Inside a pants pocket they found a wallet containing Heredia’s Connecticut Identification Card and his social security card.
