The clothing was found on the floor, officers said. Deputy Clyde Tisdel Jr.. of Bethalto, who instigated, said HIP incident occurred at the home of Charles Rudd, 1428 First St., For- pst Homes. A window on the west side of the house was forced by the intruder, who then slit the night- clothing from Rudd's three sleeping step-daughters, aged 11. 8 and 7. None of the children were mflt tested and all failed to awaken, Rudd reported. Investigation by Deputy Tisdel disclosed that a 14-year-old boy fn the family had been awakened about 1:30 a.m. and thought he heard someone running around the rear of the Rudd home. A neighbor reported she was awakened about the same time when a ladder in her yard was knocked down. Rudd said the intrusion was not discovered until this morning when fhje three step-daughters awakened to find their nightclothing had been removed. Deputy Tisdel said a sharp knife apparently had been used by the intruder to remove the children's clothing as they slept.
