Police looking for burglar who attempted assault

Anthony Street suspect has similar description as previous suspect

COLUMBIA, Mo. - Columbia police say the man who broke into an Anthony Street home Saturday morning has the same description as a burglar earlier this week.

A 19-year-old woman reported she was nearly sexually assaulted in her bedroom just after 3:30 a.m. Saturday. She told police she woke up to a man in her room, but he ran when she fought back.

A K9 unit at the scene lost his scent during the investigation.

The description of the man from the 1300 block of Anthony is similar to one from a Thursday burglary on Bicknell.

Police were looking for a thin white man in his early 20s, wearing dark clothing Saturday.

If you have any information on this case, you're asked to call Columbia police or CrimeStoppers at 875-TIPS.
