Police in northwest suburban Rolling Meadows are looking for a parolee wanted for a home invasion burglary.
Police say Stanley Miller, 32, tried to break into a home of an 86-year-old woman in the 2400 block of Central Road at 3 p.m. Sunday.
They say he approached the woman about doing some roof repairs.
The woman was in her home behind a locked screen door, but Miller was able to force open the door once the woman walked away.
The victim spotted Miller in her kitchen rummaged for valuables. She approached and that’s when he allegedly hit her and then ran off.
Police say Miller tried to approach the home of a 90-year-old woman a few hours earlier but he was scared off when a visitor pulled into the woman’s driveway.
Investigators were able to identified Stanley Miller at the suspect.
The victim picked him out of a series of photos.
Miller is currently on parole after being sentenced to eight years in prison for a 2010 residential burglary conviction in Cook County, according to Illinois Department of Corrections records.
He was previously convicted of retail theft in 2009, also in Cook County.
Arlington Heights police found his vehicle abandoned in a parking lot shortly after the Sunday robbery.
Miller has not been found.
The Cook County Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for tips in the case.
