A masked man armed with a gun is being hunted by police after three home invasions in the Hamilton suburb of Hillcrest in two hours.

Detective Sergeant Kristine Clarke said today that police believed the same man might be responsible for all three incidents.

The first reported incident was about 3am Sunday, when a woman asleep with her partner in their Hillcrest Rd home woke to find a man standing over her bed and holding her hand.

The woman screamed and the intruder fled.

Twenty minutes later, a man arrived home at his Orelio St house to find an intruder who pointed a gun at him before fleeing, Ms Clarke said.

Then at about 4.15am, a young woman staying with a female friend in the University of Waikato halls of residence complex on Silverdale Rd woke up to find a man bending over her friend in an adjacent bed.

She challenged him and he threatened her with the firearm before running out the front door of the halls.. .
