Police say 25-year-old Dazia Trent broke into the apartment, where the woman was asleep. Police say she was sleeping naked -- and Trent began to fondle her sexually. According to the arrest report, that woke her up and she started screaming, causing Trent to run away.
Police say the woman saw Trent later in the day and called police. When police confronted him, he allegedly led them on a brief foot chase, but he was ultimately taken into custody and questioned.

Trent was arrested and charged with third-degree sex abuse, tampering with physical evidence, second-degree burglary, third-degree burglary, first-degree fleeing or evading police and first-degree possession of a controlled substance. He is currently being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
