Authorities are trying to track down a man who allegedly barged into an east Shreveport home in an attempted sexual assault.

The incident happened shortly before 9 a.m. Friday in the 7700 block of Creswell Rd.

The homeowner told officers when she answered a knock at her door, an unknown male armed with a knife forced his way inside her home. She claimed the man, upon entering the residence, attempted to sexually assault her. He later fled on foot after making off with a small amount of cash. 

The suspect is described as a heavy set, black male in his mid-40's, standing approximately 5' 11" tall.  He was last seen wearing all dark clothing, with a dark colored baseball style cap.
